Wonder is a beautiful family drama with a cast that’s wonderful. It’s an incredible story of a mid schoolboy with facial differences who attends regular school for the first time. The movie showcases acceptance, love, friendship, kindness twined with lots of fun moments. The best part of it was the message ” if you were given a choice to being right or being kind, choose kind”. Wonder resonates assurance of kindness. Wonder was in and out wonderful. the movie succeeds in capturing the spirit of the novel with flying colours. Its strong message that kids and parents both will love is extremely relevant and eventually reminds you of the good in the world.

What arts can achieve in the wake of this hopelessness we feel about the world. Not only in terms of the already existing evils like violence, wars, politicians, capitalism; but in terms of daily human internal struggle, the problem of acceptance, fear of unknown, pluralistic ignorance, bullying. Not everything is a government problem.
Some problems are up to citizens and society to handle. This film showcases how we’ve created such a tough world for anyone who “we think” is so different, whether on appearance, or views or physical/ mental disability. And that it can be better, the movie has only propagated love, kindness, friendship, helpfulness, patience. I found the movie to be intense with the tender emotions being very subtly portrayed. The characters have bold outlines, with kindness, acceptance and emotional strength in every scene.
There are some movies that you just can’t make a critic review because you are so into them so you forget you are watching a movie. These movies are so rare but Wonder is one of them. It’s not just Ogi’s story. Its everyone’s story. It’s the idea that everyone has struggles and that changes us is the way we deal with them.
