Wonder was an incredibly inspiring film. My 20 year old cried, and my 6 year old really watched with care. Sarah, my 20 year old, is going to College to become a teacher. So this was a good film for her to watch. She said it inspired her to be the best that she could be. My 6 year old says “I’ll never bully anyone, Mommy.” He saw how hurt Auggie was, and said he doesn’t want to do that to anyone.
Julia Roberts, & Owen Wilson, play great parents in this film. They are consoling, and inspirational.
Wonder follows the inspiring story of the Pullman family, whose youngest child, Auggie, is a boy born with facial differences. When Auggie enters elementary school for the first time, his extraordinary journey unites his family, his school, and his community, and proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.
You can purchase Wonder, starting February 13, and you will really enjoy it, even with an added tear, or two.
