Mini Review - Wonder

Wonder (out Nov 30) is based on the novel by R.J. Palacio and follows a not-so-normal looking 10-year-old who battles to make friends during his first year at middle school. It’s a little simplistic in places but it’s hard to be critical of such a heart-warming film. Jacob Tremblay (Room) is great in the leading role and the supporting cast all get the chance to shine with wise words of their own. Grade: B+.
