More

WONDER is a film for everyone who wants to see something thoroughly, heart-wrenchingly friendly. 10 year old August (Jacob Tremblay), otherwise known as Auggie, likes to wear an astronaut helmet in public because his face is deformed. Up until now his family: mother Isabel (Julia Roberts), father Nate (Owen Wilson), and big sister Via (Izabela Vidoovic) stood in front of him to protect him, but now it is time for Auggie to go to a normal school. You might need your tissue at the moment in which the parents take their youngest to the school gates where he enters a big, wide, and possibly hostile world, but it‘s never uncomfortably unsentimental, well, perhaps a bit in the end. Auggie is a smart kid, and, when he‘s feeling confident enough, he‘s also a quick-witted kid that likes to have fun. The others just have to get to know that side. But the focus of the film is broader. WONDER is also about Auggie‘s best friend Jack (Noah Jupe), who plays with Auggie at first out of a sense of duty and can‘t admit to his old friends that they‘re real friends later on and Auggie‘s sister Via‘s experience being in the shadows of Auggie‘s needs her entire life. Director Stephen Chbosky (THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER) has a great eye for teen dilemmas and also sees the insecure kids behind the bully facade without diverting or misusing Auggie‘s special situation. Jacob Tremblay is a wonder himself, the kid from ROOM acts with the nuance of an adult professional.
