It’s taken Hollywood more than 50 years to bring Madeleine L’Engle’s beloved children’s classic A Wrinkle In Time to the big screen, as the book was published all the way back in 1962.
Director Ava DuVernay (Selma) directs the new Disney adaptation (out March 8), with screenwriter Jennifer Lee (Frozen) and Jeff Stockwell (Bridge to Terabithia) transforming L’Engle’s words into a script for movie audiences. The film stars newcomer Storm Reid as Meg Murray, the young protagonist in search of her missing father (Chris Pine) with the help of Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling), and Mrs. Which (Oprah).
A Wrinkle In Time comes to O’Neil Cinemas theaters in Brickyard Square in Epping and at The Point in Littleton this March.
