'Wrinkle in Time' is a powerful story of family

In a recent interview with NBC News, director Ava DuVernay revealed how she hopes the book-to-movie adaptation will inspire the next generation.

"I'm doing a camp this summer for female filmmakers", she told The Associated Press in a joint interview with her A Wrinkle in Time co-stars Oprah Winfrey and Mindy Kaling. Here's why I made this! Although the 14-year-old has appeared in a handful of movies over the past six years, this film is her moment. "It's a dark world", she said.

In that sense, she succeeded.

A Wrinkle in Time now suffers a poor Rotten Tomatoes score of 43 percent.

Lok Sabha Proceedings Disrupted For Fifth Consecutive Day
It's mad, mad, mad. whoever does it. whether it is in Tamil Nadu, West Bengal or Tripura", Naidu said in the Rajya Sabha . Venkaiah Naidu to adjourn the House till 2 p.m. "It's a shame.

Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey) is charged with the anxious Meg (Storm Reid), who, like many of Oprah's followers, just needs a little boost of self-confidence before she's ready to stand up to a universe-devouring evil. Who (Mindy Kaling). All three share the ability to travel through time and space - they call it "tessering"-and they have come to help Meg and Charles Wallace find their father". So for me to be able to be that [inspiration] for young girls that look like me - but really for all girls, to show them they can do anything, that's wonderful.

She says people keep telling her how much she's going to change with her new raised profile. First, with an appearance from Mrs. Whatsit in the night, a spunky, red-wigged Witherspoon, who hints that she may know something about Mr. Murry's whereabouts. It's nearly laughably appropriate casting for Winfrey, who embodies the wise, godlike presence Mrs. A friend of mine had a tremendous episode of peer pressure of very big proportions that I'd never experienced or seen just a couple of weeks ago, when the whole country was saying, 'You should run for president!' [Laughter] She said, 'Y'all, the voice inside of me says, 'I am not your president. Follow-up harassment from classmates only accentuates Meg's feeling of abandonment.

With that weird casting situation now behind them, Oprah Winfrey's Mrs. Then she lists all kinds of people who've profoundly impacted humanity and leaves out Jesus. To accomplish their mission and bring her father home, Meg must face "The It" and overcome the source of its universe-spanning power. Yet, aside from a few well-structured set pieces boasting odd appearances by Scandal's Bellamy Young and Michael Peña, the trust of the story gets lost, somehow both hurried and dragging along as it reaches a heavy-handed conclusion.

It may not be at all the way readers since L'Engle's novel was published in 1962 imagined it, but it is often impressive and immersive, to the point where you'll want to spend more time than the film allows on these handsome worlds. DuVernay getting to make this movie in and of itself is a win for the industry, so as long as it's not a financial disappointment, this is an overall success story still. For those who remember reading and falling in love with L'Engle's novel when they were young, it should prove an interesting experience, especially to note where the film deviates from the print version. Not only because DuVernay is the first African American woman to direct a film with a budget of $100 million, but the film comes less than a month after the Disney's blockbuster hit "Black Panther".
