| OK for a TV Movie
"A Wrinkle in Time" is my favorite book. I have loved it since I was inelementary school, and as a 25 year old, love it even more. I grew up hoping that this book would someday be made into a movie, so I was very excited to hear about Disney taking the project on. My excitement faded when I heard it was not coming out in theaters, but instead, would go straight to television. For a TV movie, it's about what I'd expect it to be. I must admit that there is much to be desired with this adaptation. It's not nearly as faithful as the book as it could be, and there are some parts in the movie that I find to be unnecessary and out of place. My biggest disappointment was that many of the Christian elements of the book were excluded, making the story into merely just another (albeit brilliant) fantasy. I'd say that, generally speaking, the movie did a fair job of keeping the fanciful essence of the story. There are some things I didn't like, but I wasn't completely devastated. The acting was not anything brilliant. I was annoyed by the portrayal of Ms. Whatsit, but I thought Ms. Who and Ms. Which were pretty good. Meg didn't have glasses, which irks me, but I can overlook it. She wasn't bad, just oddly unemotional at times. Charles Wallace was portrayed well. He was very believable. The biggest disappointment was Calvin. The actor didn't seem to show much emotion at all. His dialogue seemed forced and rigid. There was chemistry between him and Meg, but I was left wanting just a little more. Overall, I do enjoy this movie, but my advice is, read the book if you haven't already. The movie was OK, but the book is absolutely phenomenal.
