Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie Pullman becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to discover 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.

    What a story. One of those movies where you know it's going to be good about 30 seconds in. And it never disappoints. Loved how they broke down individual characters, to see what's going on inside the social facade we all put up. Then, tied them all together in the telling. Totally captivated by this, cover to cover. Now, I'm going to read the book.
  • Nice movie

    I like it, I just wish they didn’t skip some of the prospectives that were in the book.
  • Story is bad, actors/effects/ visuals were good.

    The actors were great and the visuals were excellent. The problem is with the story- to be more accurate the book. August is portrayed as a incredibly selfish kid. Yes, we get it that he has problems. And that’s very unfortunate and we all know that there are kids in real life who have to deal with the same thing. He needs to grow up. But he always acts like the world revolves around him. He never asks Summer, Charlotte, or Jack Will about themselves. Everything is Auggie, Auggie, Auggie! Obviously he’s the main character, but his friends are shallowly developed.He never takes into consideration the feelings of others such as his sister. She’s had to deal with him for so long, and the one time she wants to do sometimes by herself August throws a big temper tantrum and gets his way. He acts so much like a victim that is cringe worthy. Additionally the way that the story portrayed the other kids in his grade is very inaccurate. They seem to just be in the story to make you feel even more bad for August. He’s in fifth grade, but he’s so clingy to his mom. When is was in fifth grade, I had serious medical condition that made me several days of school because I had to do to the hospital. Additionally I had a teacher that treated me badly. But did i whine and cry? No, I sucked it up! I have siblings and I didn’t invade their lives.Which is what the movie is supposed to be telling you-be strong in hard times etc.) The parents are always so lenient and give August ALL their attention. And what’s with the end of movie where they treated him like he was Baby Jesus?! I mean, he didn’t do anything remarkable. I, like others cried at the end. But not for Auggie. No, I cried because of Olivia. Olivia literally gave everything to Auggie. She’s not allowed to do anything with just her and her parents without Auggie throwing a big fat hissy fit. This can lead to depression and other terrible mental illnesses. Overall the movie was great, but the story was terrible. (Sorry if there are misspelled words!)
  • The book was WAY better

    I was really excited when this movie came out but felt a little dissapointment after watching it. They got get most of the plot right, except why didnt they add Summer's and Justin's point of views to the movie? I mean they were part of the book (BTW, they were my favorite characters). I liked how Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson were in it, but some of the characters didnt look like the way they were described in the book. For example: Jack Will was supposed to have blonde curly hair, not wavy dark hair. To be fair, I still kinda liked the movie, but I wouldnt watch it again. I would much rather read the book again.
  • To show who you are

    That movie shows that it doesn’t matter how you look in the outside it matters what you look like in the inside.

    I loved this movie and its one of my favs but I was a bit disappointed bc it missed some of the scenes from the novel. And they also describe him as if he looked much worse in the novel. Heartwarming though.
  • You gotta love it
