Young people face many challenges as they grow up in the world today. Between the ages of 8-12, most are just learning about their imperfections. I recently screened the film A Wrinkle In Time twice and enjoyed it. Thank you, Ava DuVernay for providing us with this amazing gift!

I urge you all to advise your children about life and it’s challenges. Life isn’t always bright lights and laughter. We live in a time where advanced education is essential the world around us is intimidating and fast pace.Prepare the young people of today so that they can have some idea of what to foresee.

Ava DuVernay whose quite a visionary took us on a quest the film highlighted a lot of things that can strike necessary conversations. The film then cleared the table for more topics of discussion. I enjoyed the science lesson spelled out in the film but furthermore I enjoyed watching the younger actors throughout the movie “shine” with strength and courage. A Wrinkle In Time sends a strong message to the youth that they can be and are the light in times of darkness. Have courage and no matter what don’t give up. This is why A Wrinkle In Time is important.

The Mrs (Mrs. Whatsit. Mrs. Whatsit Mrs. Who) reminded me of our elders “Wisdom Keepers” I call them. Many are like staples in our lives that live by tradition, faith, and hope. Traditionally in most cultures we use to look to our elders for history lessons and encouragement. An art of tradition that has been lost with millennials. Another important lesson to take from A Wrinkle In Time is sometimes you may need to ask for help you can’t do it all on your own just ask. Each actor portrayed a critical role and aided us all with lessons to live by. Even as adults sometimes we lack understanding on how to overcome things and don’t recognize our light.

From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.

Meg Murry is a typical middle school student struggling with issues of self-worth who just wants to fit in. The daughter of two world-renowned physicists, she is intelligent and uniquely gifted, as is Meg’s younger brother, Charles Wallace, but she has yet to realize it for herself. Complicating matters is the mysterious disappearance of Mr. Murry, which has left Meg devastated and her mother broken-hearted. Charles Wallace introduces Meg and her fellow classmate Calvin to three celestial beings (Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who) who have journeyed to Earth to help search for their father, and together they embark on their formidable quest. Traveling via a wrinkling of time and space are known as tessering, they are transported to worlds beyond their imagination where they must confront a powerful evil force. To make it back home to Earth, Meg must face the darkness within herself in order to harness the strength necessary to defeat the darkness rapidly enveloping the Universe.
