Be a warrior.
Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Storm Reid, Zach Galifianakis, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw
|Screenplay||Jennifer Lee, Jeff Stockwell, from the novel by Madeleine L'Engle|
|Cinematography||Tobias A. Schliessler|
|Sound formats||Dolby Atmos|
|Produced by||Walt Disney Pictures, Whitaker Entertainment|
|Violence||Low impact, infrequent (fantastical, no blood-letting but could be disturbing to the younger viewers).|
|Comments||The family fantasy, magical and light-hearted themes presented in an adventure context are carried in the film exploring issues of love, family, magic, bravery, heroism, friendship, teamwork, jealousy, good versus evil, teamwork, overcoming fear, self belief, trust and re-union. The themes carry a low sense of threat and menace which could potentially lead to the arousal of fear to the younger viewers. However, the themes do not have the potential of being morally harmful to the younger viewers as they are of a fantastical nature and they treated in ways that would be within their tolerance levels. The overall positive themes mitigate the negative themes such as fear, deceit and self-doubt. Therefore, a PG rating would be suitable as parental guidance would provide reassurance and assist further in explaining the context.|

What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Jamal-Dean Grootboom A lot of wrinkles need ironing out.
Petrus Malherbe Oprah-fliek laat jou voorkop op plooi trek.
Ann Hornaday An enjoyable fantasy.
Leandra Engelbrecht A Wrinkle in Time is probably the most disappointing film of the year for me.
Tomatometer A Wrinkle in Time is visually gorgeous, big-hearted, and occasionally quite moving; unfortunately, it’s also wildly ambitious to a fault, and often less than the sum of its classic parts.

Sandie Angulo Chen Inclusive but imperfect take on classic story of hope, love.
