“I missed you every second of every day.”
As with Disney’s last big, originalish non-remake live action movie Tomorrowland, the intention, message, and overall sentiment of A Wrinkle in Time helps to compensate for some structural problems and narrative messiness in some parts. As with all things, it succeeds most when things start getting dark and trippy. Overall, it’s an excellent adaptation of a book long thought to be unfilmable with an inspiring message of self-worth that everyone could stand to hear once in a while.
My VHS cover pull-quote: “I said it’s like Tomorrowland, but I really enjoyed Tomorrowland.”
