Oscar Project 2018: Wonder

Movie: Wonder

I'm not the biggest fan of heartwarming family movies, but this one, about a boy with facial deformities starting school, had its genuinely touching moments and did some things I liked, especially around the story of the main character's older sister. Unfortunately, its good points were subsumed by it falling into the too-common trap of making it seem a person with health problems or disabilities exists primarily to inspire the people around him and make them better. BLEH. I will say that the child actors were all impressive here, and that I had no idea Daveed Diggs and Ali Liebert would be popping up as teachers, so that was a delightful surprise.

Availability: On its way out of theaters, so if you want to see it you should go ASAP.

Nominated In:
Makeup & Hairstyling: Sure, I guess.
