Synopsis

Auggie Pullman (Jacob Tremblay) was born with a facial deformity and has had 27 surgeries in order to help him to breathe, see, and hear without a hearing aid, but he still looks different from other kids. He's been homeschooled up to now by his mother, Isabel (Julia Roberts), but now that he's 10, she's decided he should go to school with other children at the beginning of fifth grade. 

Before the school year begins, he's introduced to three kids — Jack Will (Noah Jupe), Julian (Bryce Gheisar) and Charlotte (Elle McKinnon) — who show him around school, but as time goes on, Julian quickly proves to be a bully, often making fun of Auggie. Meanwhile, Auggie's sister Via (Izabela Vidovic) is struggling with her own problems fitting in at high school, while Auggie's father (Owen Wilson) reassures his son that everyone has troubles. 

Based on the New York Times bestseller by R.J. Palacio.

  • 5 stars "This is the most amazing movie I have seen in years! I think everyone should watch this - lessons for all to be learned, especially kids of all ages (Kindergarten all the way thru school) - too much bullying going on. It teaches that everyone has issues, problems, disabilities - but they are all equal and should not be treated any less than the next person. A MUST TO SEE!!!!!!!!!"

  • 5 stars "A feel good movie with a child that has a genetic issue that makes him vulnerable to ridicule and bullying. A must see movie on every level."
