Wonder Available On Digital Download, 4K UHD, Blu-Ray & DVD On 26th March 2018
WONDER is the heart-warming story of one young boy’s inspiring bravery and courage arriving on home screens just in time for the Easter holidays. From Monday 26th March 2018 WONDER hits Digital Download, 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD.
Based on the New York Times bestseller by R.J. Palacio, the Academy Award®* and BAFTA** nominated WONDER tells the inspiring and heart-warming story of August “Auggie” Pullman.
Auggie was born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the fifth grade at his local school. As his family, new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie’s extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.
You Can’t Blend In When You Were Born To Stand Out
Auggie is played by young actor Jacob Tremblay who I last saw in Room. Jacob stars along side an A-list cast that boasts Academy Award® winner Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson. Mr. Tushman the school principal is played by one of my all time favourite actors, Mandy Patinkin who played Inigo Montoya in The Princess Bride and Saul Berenson in Homeland. The school principal, Mr. Tushman, teaches the students that “we carry with us, as human beings, not just the capacity to be kind, but the very choice of kindness.”
With enough charm and warmth to melt even the stoniest of hearts, Auggie’s uplifting and life-affirming story of tolerance, friendship and togetherness is one for all the family to enjoy over the Easter holidays. Featuring a host of exclusive extra content, WONDER is this year’s stand-out family film release, and a classic in the making.
We were sent a press disk to watch for the purposes of this review. It’s PG rated and Mr H age 10, Diva G age 8 and I watched all watched it together. Mr H and I have both read the book, you don’t need to have read the book first but if you haven’t I’d recommend it for every child age 9-11 years old to read it before high school. Having read the book Mr H felt Auggie wasn’t as disfigured as he had imagined which I thought was imteresting. The movie is inspiring, uplifting and honest. I love having the film to be able to watch it over and over again. All three of us cried and we all agreed a solid 8 out of 10. We loved it.
The movie screened in cinemas in December 2017 and now WONDER is available on digital download, 4K UHD, Blu-Ray & DVD On 26th March 2018.
