Trailer A Wrinkle in Time
Story is the journey to find father Alex (Chris Pine) of her sister Meg Murry (Storm Reid) and younger brother Charles Wallace (Deric McCade). Both with the help of the three fairies, Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), Who (Mingdy Kalin), Which (Oprah Winfrey) have engaged in every corner of the universe and against the dark forces to find the source. missing his father, then brought him back to the familiar nest.
In addition to the adventure to the strange land, the storyline also revolves around the insecurity of her protagonist: family suddenly disturbed, themselves bullied and isolated in school, feel the deadlock in expressing myself and sharing my heart, but being a “hot boy” secretly thief remember …
Use childish thoughts to solve adult problems
It can be seen in many details in A Wrinkle in Time that reminds the classic Alice in Wonderland. But, in Ava DuVernay’s movie, the character system is much more diverse and everyday life.
This is the story of beautiful baby Veronica “brainwashing” by the “crazy and beautiful” crazy concept of adults, so that the fasting force and weight in puberty. It is the story of Calvin (Levi Miller) born in a wealthy family, wealthy, but every night his father was terrorist spirit because of deficiency scores.
The life of the adults in the movie is not much better. It is the story of the principal’s boss every day worrying about his colleagues and subordinates playing bad at the height of power. Meg’s father can not bear the pressure of the science for his universe theory that resolves to leave family to seek evidence …
The problem of these fate is that it originated from the Dark forces that are invading the Earth. They cover their eyes and lead them astray.
The appearance of Three Fairy Whatsit – Who – Which helped create the trio of Light, giving the answer and opening the way for Meg. The messages sent by the characters are also aimed at younger audiences: evaluate the nature and dare to face the truth. Only then can we understand that family, love, and kindness are the most important things in life.
Thanks to a series of humorous years, A Wrinkle in Time also wants to convey the problems of adult life. To live meaningfully, to become great, is not only the dream of the children, but even of their parents.
In general, Disney has made good use of the criteria for the content of a family-oriented movie: using child mind to solve adult problems.

Content is out of size, blurred
A Wrinkle in Time also expanded the story with the message of the small universe and macromolecules. In essence, the content of the original novel is very complex, so it is not easy to download the content of the macro level to the screen.
The explanation of molecular theory and relationships in the universe is somewhat reminiscent of the title of I Origins (2014), but A Wrinkle in Time explains the physical problems – the macroscopic universe from the point of view. broad vision and mind control, not just the chance of fate.
The “fold of time” mentioned in the film is the link between the worlds and the universe together. Wanting to enter another world, we need to capture its frequency. And that frequency is not far away: love.
Audiences can feel ennobled and imagined with strange planets, filled with sound and color in the movie. Finding her father, Meg goes into the world of flying flowers, skyrocketing multifarious cube blocks, and black holes do not smoke at the end.
Song, the image is probably the greatest highlight of A Wrinkle in Time. The content of the film is quite hugging, spread, so most details are still shallow. As a result, the film can be difficult to understand, dogma with children, but superficial, bland with adults.
If the star performs, the three stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling are disappointing. The three fairies they show are always colorful, heavy, and sometimes ridiculous.
In terms of visuals, design and effects, A Wrinkle in Time is a big expense. However, the content of the work does not match that. This is probably Disney’s first “leap” in 2018.
