A WRINKLE IN TIME: A 

An old tagline for the website you’re visiting was “leave you snark at the doorstep”, and I can give you no better advice in approaching Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time. DuVernay and Disney give the classic children’s novel a modern polish, and shift the book’s heavily Christian imagery into a more, let’s say, “Oprah-esque” spirituality (it helps to have a 50-foot version of Winfrey hanging around). It’s far from a perfect film, but something does not have to be perfect to be beautiful, which, in case you're not paying attention, is the message the movie is offering you.
