Here’s another good Movie of this holiday season. WONDER stars Jacob Tremblay as Auggie, a smart-as-a-whip little boy with a condition involving a facial deformity. Auggie gets around the stares and derision of people by usually keeping a space helmet over his head when he leaves the house. Just knowing that a child would do such a thing as a coping strategy is enough to break your heart.
Auggie has been home-schooled, but now he’s about to enter the fifth grade. His parents, beautifully played by Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson, decide to send him to a Middle School.
It’s a bit of an ordeal to watch this gutsy little boy as he walks into the school and has to face so many inter-personal problems during his first year, but it’s well worth it. Naturally it’s a great movie for kids to see, and could especially give pause to the ones who may think they’re being “funny” when mocking other children.
Jacob Tremblay deserves an Oscar nomination for this one!
