Based on the New York Times bestselling novel “Wonder” by R.J. Palacio and directed by Stephen Chbosky (“Perks of being a Wildflower”), the amazing movie adaptation stars Academy Award winning actress (“Erin Brokovich”) Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson (“Marley & Me”), with Jacob Tremblay (“Room”).
“You are not ugly, and anyone who cares to know you will see that.” The world is full of insecurities, but when one kid changes the way people see things, it breaks barriers and sets in new norms for everyone around us, seeing how people that love us the most would do anything for us to fit into the society and that we should spread the thing the world needs these days, Kindness.
“Wonder” tells the inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman (Jacob Tremblay). Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters mainstream school on his fifth grade.
As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie’s extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.
During her appearance in The Late Show with James Corden, Julia Roberts who plays Auggie’s mom Isabel Pullman, had nothing but praises as she sums up what “Wonder” is all about.
“We can always use more kindness in our lives, but I think right now is really a good time to be reminded of maybe sharpening our kindness skills.”
The film co-stars Hollywood’s Mandy Patinkin (“Homeland”), Crystal Lowe (“Final Destination 3”), Daveed Diggs (“Hamilton”) and Izabela Vidovic (“The Fosters”)
“Wonder” is sure to spread kindness to everyone as it hits theaters nationwide starting November 29, 2017 as distributed by Pioneer Films.
