A Wrinkle in Time - Meg & Mrs. Whatsit

I loved A Wrinkle in Time when I read it as a kid. Not only did I read A Wrinkle in Time, I also read the other novels. Unfortunately, I remember very little from the series – I didn’t even recognize the trailer at first. Unfortunately, my daughter did not enjoy the book when her teacher read them aloud in 1st grade.

About A Wrinkle in Time

Walt Disney Studios provided the following description of the movie:

A Wrinkle in TimeFrom 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. Travelling via a wrinkling of time and space 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.

Ann Arbor with Kids is your go-to source for Ann Arbor Family Fun. It got its start in an activity list that I was compiling for the playgroup I ran at our church. When my daughter started preschool, the other moms were thrilled to hear about my list. I decided to take the list public in 2009.

    Sad that your daughter not liking a book in first grade kept you away opening day. I depend on your reviews to get an honest opinion if PG movies are ok for my daughter. I hope you see this girl centered story soon.

    • Part of it is lack of opportunity too. We didn’t get a screening invite (although I’m not sure we could have gone to Troy that night) and my daughter has activities all weekend. I think we’ve convinced her to go see it – when we get a chance. Next weekend actually looks worse, so it will probably be spring break weekend.
