A Wrinkle in Time – Home Entertainment Review by DC Sarah

A Wrinkle in Time- The Misses

More than 50 years after Madeleine L’Engle’s young adult novel A Wrinkle in Time was awarded the prestigious Newbery Medal, the big-screen retelling of this timeless classic takesaudienc es on a transformative journey, exquisitely illustrated through jaw-dropping visual effects, a stirring musical score and diverse, star-studded cast. Three celestial guides, Mrs. Which (two-time Academy Award® nominee Oprah Winfrey), Mrs. Whatsit (Oscar®, Golden Globe® and Emmy® winner Reese Witherspoon) and Mrs. Who (Emmy nominee Mindy Kaling), come to Earth to share their wisdom and love with struggling eighth-grader Meg Murry (Storm Reid) as she journeys across dimensions with classmate Calvin (Levi Miller) and younger brother Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe) in search of her father (Chris Pine), a world-renowned physicist who mysteriously disappeared four years ago.

Quality

Simply put, this movie is visually stunning. The vibrancy and saturation of the color in this film is enhanced by the HD release. While we didn’t view the 4K edition, I can only imagine it would be incredible. It is definitely easy to get lost in the beauty of the worlds presented in the movie. The sound design is well executed and the blu-ray definitely does it justice. WIT Chris Pine

**Bonus features may vary by retailer

The best bonus feature, in my opinion, is the Journey in Time featurette. It goes in-depth into the making of the film. It also discusses the change in Hollywood with emphasis on the female direction of such a huge film as well as the cast of strong female leads.

Final Thoughts

A Wrinkle in Time was absolutely incredible. I loved the use of the strong female characters and while it may not be the most popular opinion with fans of the book, I really liked the changes made to the character dynamics. The message of this film is something that needs to be heard right now. I felt a huge connection to this movie and highly recommend picking up a copy!
