Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to discover their compassion and acceptance, Auggie’s extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.
Colin Covert of the Start Tribune gave the film 3/4 stars, saying, “Sure, it’s a simple, straightforward film, but sometimes that’s all you need as long as its heart is true.” Film critic Richard Roeper gave the film 4 out of 4 stars and said, “Gifted isn’t the best or most sophisticated or most original film of the year so far – but it just might be my favorite.”
