Based on the incredible novel by Madeleine L’Engle, this sci-fi movie will be remembered for a long time. There can be some comparisons between the book and movie. I can remember watching the 1980s version of this story and saying “this needs better graphics,” and that is exactly what this version brings to the viewer.

Story Line

A Wrinkle in Time can be confusing as far as what is going on but it did a great job on filling in those gaps. As the storyline goes it is very simple to break down. The story starts with Meg (Storm Reid) being made fun of and trying to hide from her bullies all because her dad was lost. When all hope was lost Meg, Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe), and Calvin (Levi Miller) are visited by three witches that take them on a journey to find Meg’s dad.

Graphics

We have to mention the graphics team because they made Oprah Winfrey a giant human. For part of the movie, you have a huge Oprah looking down at everyone like she does in real life. Most movies made before the 2000s, one can tell what is fake and real, now you can’t even tell what is computer generated.

Characters

As far as the people playing the parts go, they could not have done a better job of making us believe they are actually those people. With all the big stars, moviegoers will not want to miss this movie.

Compared to the Book 

First, there was a lot more heart and soul described in the book. The book did a better job at going over the battle of good vs. evil. Also, the book describes this ‘it’ that was a brain that pulsed and put negative thoughts in people that made them mean and cruel. In the movie, the ‘it’ was more of a dark blob that did the same thing.

Overall, I am not here to tell you which is better, but I am here to tell you to see the movie and read the book A Wrinkle In Time and tell me what you think…
