WONDER (Theatrical Release USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

defines Wow! Encore! and Bravo! entertainment. This movie marries ‘Let me entertain you’ with ‘Let me show you how to be an actively caring, compassionate person.’ Owen Wilson and Julia Roberts are perfectly cast for their parts. Jake Tremblay performs at an above average level.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This movie is some of the best of 2017. It’s a ‘wonder’ to watch, perfectly developed for excellent family discussion after watching, and has as much quality as the movie Wonderstruck.
