A WRINKLE IN TIME, OPENS ON MARCH 9, 2018
Directed by Ava DuVernay. Starring Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
Some of you may recall hearing this title before. That’s because A Wrinkle In Time was originally published in 1962 as a science fantasy novel by Madeleine L’Engle. It was also made into a film for TV around 2003, but in 2018 it will make the quantum leap to the BIG screen. Not only is Ava DuVernay directing it (her most recent full-length film since the groundbreaking documentary, 13th) but the film also features some other amazing women of color including, Mindy Kaling, of The Office and The Mindy Project, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who exploded onto the world stage in Beyond The Lights. The plot follows the arc of the book. When Meg (Storm Reid) discovers her father has disappeared, she embarks on a fantastic adventure to rescue him with the help of three magical beings. For those of you who have always wondered what a black version of Harry Potter might look like, get ready.
