I first read A Wrinkle in Time when my daughter was in 6th grade. Since I homeschooled my kids, we were in a group where I was in charge of the literature class. I’m not sure why I never read it as a child. I don’t even know that it was introduced to me, but I am so glad I had my class read it. It introduced me to a magical world. I went on to read the other books in the A Wrinkle in Time Quintet. They are middle grade books, but if you haven’t read them, I highly suggest you do. I think they’ll get you even more excited for what I’m sure will be a huge hit at the box office.
A WRINKLE IN TIME
From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s A WRINKLE IN TIME, an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light 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.
Meg Murry 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 Meg’s younger brother, Charles Wallace, but she has yet to realize it for herself. Complicating matters is the mysterious disappearance of Mr. Murry, which has left Meg devastated and her mother broken-hearted.
Charles Wallace introduces Meg and her fellow classmate Calvin to three celestial beings (Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who) who have journeyed to Earth to help search for their father, and together they embark on their formidable quest. Travelling via a wrinkling of time and space known as tessering, they are transported to worlds beyond their imagination where they must confront a powerful evil force. To make it back home to Earth, Meg must face the darkness within herself in order to harness the strength necessary to defeat the darkness rapidly enveloping the Universe.
