‘’Wonder’’ is a heartbreaking, and funny movie! It’s about a boy named August Pullman (Jacob Tremblay) who was born with a facial deformity. August was homeschooled his entire life. August is now finally going to school for the first time.

He has two friends named Jack (Noah Jupe), and Summer (Millie Davis). They are August’s two friends and have been by his side in his middle school.

But when a bully named Julian (Bryce Gheisar) gets in the picture, and starts bullying August, things start to get serious.

I recommend the movie for all ages because it a heart warming movie that in my opinion, I think everyone would love! The movie teaches people not to judge others by their looks but by their character and actions.

    I didn’t hear much about this book until now. My sister read the book and now that the movie is out, my sister is dying to see the movie.

    Great review! I saw the movie just yesterday and I loved it. All of the teachers were crying. I really loved the message of it. I read the book last year too and I was so happy when I found out it was going to be a movie. 🙂

    Thank you for the comment. It was very pleasing. Especially in this time of the year because it is my birthday on Thursday the 7th. 😉

    Great review!!! A couple days ago my class was talking about the book. It sounds really fascinating, and I would love to read it. I was born with a different lip as some of the people reading this comment know, but I am not as bad as August. I really hope he stands up for himself. But overall great job. 😀 😀 😀

    I really liked your review. I agree with you because after reading your review, it really does sound like a very emotional and heart-warming movie. I also agree with what your idea of the overall message of the story is, and everyone really should follow that advice. Great review!

    In my school, the whole fifth grade went to see this movie. The way you described it was on point! You talked about the details without giving away too much information! I love this movie and the review, great job!

    This is an amazing review! I have read “Wonder” before and it is very heartwarming like you said. I was shocked (in a good way) that the movie was coming out. I can’t wait to see it! Again, awesome review!

    Great review! The way you explain the movie makes me want to watch it. I agree that people shouldn’t judge people by their looks. Nice report.

    I love this book. It is very heart warming and a little sad. I am reading the book and I cried when I read different parts of the story, like when the dog died.

    I agree Wonder is a very HEARTWARMING/HEARTBREAKING movie or book !It is pretty sad that August gets bullied even though his face looks pretty normal. But hopefully everything turns out GREAT!!!

    Wow! That was a good review! I liked that even though August has a deformity, he has friends that back him up. Good job!
