Synopsis

Based on Madeleine L'Engle's classic novel that has been both praised and banned since its 1962 release, this film follows Meg Murry (Storm Reid), her younger, brilliant brother Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe) and their self-identifying misfit friend Calvin (Levi Miller) on a wild, eventful expedition to an alternate dimension in search of Meg and Charles' world-renowned physicist father (Chris Pine). 

Meg, Charles and Calvin are transported via a wrinkling of time and space known as tessering to this alternate dimension by three supernatural beings: Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling) and Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey). 

To find Mr. Murry and return him home to Mrs. Murry (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), who's a world-renowned physicist herself, Meg, Charles and Calvin must face the darkness within themselves in order to defeat the menacing power that is darkening the cosmos.

  • 1 star "Absolutely terrible! And now the actors from the movie are blaming their own failure on white male movie critics! Appalling."
  • 1 star "I had never heard of this movie before I saw it, so had no idea or expectations whatsoever. I had to st op about 20 minutes after they got to the distant planet because it was just going nowhere. It was silly, making no sense, and some of the characters were awful. The feminized white kid, who seemed to have no purpose whatever besides standing there admiring Meg's hair. The freakish younger brother, the creepy Reese Witherspoon character. Afterwards I looked it up and found out it was made from a 1962 book, Oprah was in it, it was directed by a Black woman, etc. I did spot Chris Pine right away, and neither this movie or his performance will likely add anything useful to his resume. I was a 100% unbiased reviewer and I thought it was garbage. So glad I didn't pay to see it."
