From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic that takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light, good versus evil and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.

The film stars Storm Reid as Meg Murry, Oprah Winfrey is Mrs. Which, Reese Witherspoon is Mrs. What’s It, Mindy Kaling is Mrs. Who, Deric McCabe is Charles Wallace Murry and Gugu Mbatha-Raw is Mrs. Murry.

I recently sat down with the star of the film, Storm Reid, at the Four Seasons hotel in Atlanta. Storms character, Meg, is a typical middle school student struggling with issues of self-worth who just wants to fit in. The daughter of two world-renowned physicists, she is intelligent and uniquely gifted, as is her younger brother, Charles Wallace, but Meg has yet to realize it for herself.

Complicating matters is the mysterious disappearance of her father four years ago, which has left Meg devastated and her mother heartbroken, and while friends and faculty at school urge her to move on, Meg knows he is still alive. Before he vanished, Mr. Murry was tracking events in the cosmos when he discovered tessering, a wrinkling of time and space through which intergalactic travel is possible, but it is still an unproven theory, and one the scientific community regards with much skepticism.

In addition to an amazing story line, the cinematography, hair and makup in “A Wrinkle in Time” are characters on their own! Take the entire family, but it’s most fitting for ages 8 and up. ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ is in theatres today!
