One of my mom’s favorite books as a kid was A Wrinkle In Time. She realllllly wanted me to read it before I saw the new movie. I read some of it but I didn’t enjoy it. When I saw the movie trailers, I felt that the movie would be more interesting then the book and a new adventure for me. I was right. A Wrinkle In Time was really cool because of the eye popping CGI, the Mrs. and their beautiful costumes plus as a kid I could relate to the character Meg because sometimes I feel left out at school.
Meg whose father disappeared 4 years ago, had a little brother named Charles Wallace. He was a child genius, and he introduced her and her friend Calvin from school to the Mrs. They first met Mrs. Whatsit, than Mrs. Who, and last, Mrs. Which. Their goal is to find Meg and Charles Wallace’s father, Alex Murry, by tessering to another planet. Tessaring is hard for Meg because she is not yet one with the universe.
The Mrs. guide Meg, Charles Wallace and Calvin on this crazy journey to the IT. Mrs. Which asks Meg if she can be a warrior. Meg responds, I’ll try. What does it mean to be a warrior? To me, it means to stand up for what and who you believe in. Like an advocate. As a young person, I can fight for what’s good for the world and the people I love. Meg turned out to be a leader because she took charge while taking care of her little brother and Calvin. It was obvious that Calvin had a crush on her. Did you see the way he looked at her? But, that didn’t distract Meg from being a warrior by saving the universe and her Father from the IT.
It’s hard being a kid. We are expected to do more work, and sometimes learn things that we won’t even need to use in the future. Kids are worrying more about the way look, then they way they feel. Meg experiences mean girls and that’s a real thing that other kids experience. I like seeing kids in movies because I can relate to what they are going through.
My friends and I loved A Wrinkle In Time. There’s one part when they are dragged by Charles Wallace who is being controlled by the IT. That was a little freaky but I managed to get through it. I recommend this movie to all ages, but especially to kids my age. I’m 10. All kids, including me are still trying to find our place in the universe. My mom, like Meg’s mom, is helping me find my place in this crazy world.
