"She told me, 'You're going to stay the same but the people around you are going to change.' I feel like I'll be recognized more once the movie comes out but I'm still the same girl".

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle is one of the most celebrated children's books of all-time.

Meg Murry (Reid) hasn't seen her father, Alex Murry (Pine), in four years.

The first thing that stood out to me in this film was the costuming. "I heard they needed a writer".

Reid's performance was stirring and indeed proved while she was the only one who could have pulled off playing Meg.

He wrote on espn.com: "Ava DuVernay is someone who makes the impossible look easy". While Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling appear to be enjoying themselves as the mystical god-like beings who help the protagonists, they mostly serve to give exposition and their screen time isn't as high as one might expect. And you can see that in her right away.

I think the same goes for Calvin. Because of her low self-esteem, Meg can not seem to fathom why anyone would compliment her or think that she is special.

"She was so flawless in the role", DuVernay added. I am also looking at what is it to bring hope. I felt like I was giving it over to good hands.

Trump Lawyers Consider Trying To Block Stormy Daniels Interview From Air
According to The Hill , a source said that Daniels' interview will not air this Sunday, but at an unspecified date in the future. She filed a lawsuit Tuesday against Trump, saying a "hush" agreement she signed was invalid because Trump never signed it.

Asking for what she needs, and wants, is something DuVernay has learned as she's gotten older. She endured 26 publishing rejections, got it into print in 1962 and saw it zoom around the world in 35 different languages.

How did you get prepared to play Meg?

What we have here, ladies and gentlemen, is a lame attempt at transcribing the whimsical elements of a classic novel with so much fantasy in it that it's a workout to not roll your eyes during the overlong running time. She has to go on a trip around the universe to figure that out. I really appreciated that aspect of Ava. There is no precedent for a black woman making films consistently.

Worse yet, they left out the book's most poetic revelation - the actual identities of Who, Which and Whatsit - and one of its most disturbing images: the little boy in a typically picture-perfect Camazotz suburban neighborhood, who, unlike all the other children on the block, is unable to bounce his ball in cadence. The stunts and the green screen was also a challenge because I had never done it before, and its kind of hard to imagine the unimaginable.

If what was onscreen wasn't so good, I might not miss the absent content as much. Before you know it, you are arriving to the conclusion and you can feel the build towards the end abruptly. And, yes, this movie is ideal for 11 and 12 years olds as well as the 11 or 12 year olds inside of us.

And indeed there is still that idea that female filmmakers are not given second chances, even when they succeed. So that made it easy to work on the movie. The next week he's the director of another thing. The fantastical side of it I always had faith in Disney. The amount a person enjoys A Wrinkle in Time depends largely on their ability to just go with the flow. "It's every emotion", says DuVernay.

Critics reviews are under embargo until Wednesday, and social media reactions so far have been unusually sparse for a film this big. Some of them, it's not (going to be) for them. Their time here is the most visually interesting of the film, especially the scene of scarily alike children bouncing the same balls at the same moment outside the same houses. I'm ok with that. Who (Mindy Kaling) were called upon because of the distress coming from Meg.

I like that she is so peculiar and that she doesn't see how handsome and smart she is, but everybody else does. "I'll risk it for that".
