Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time” movie explained the concept of self-belief and confidence, but had a messy and confusing plot.

Adapted from Madeleine L’Engle’s novel, “A Wrinkle in Time” followed Meg (Storm Reid) and Charles Wallace Murray’s (Deric McCabe) adventure to find their father. In their journey, they are guided by, Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey), Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), and Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling), along with Calvin (Levi Miller), a student at Meg’s school. They “tesseract”, or traveled through space and time, to the planet of Uriel and saw the negativity consuming the positivity. Then, Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin went to Camazotz, which was the planet where Meg had her final battle against the darkness.

The plot was not engaging and confusing. While the movie had important messages of embracing flaws and love conquering evil, the themes were lost in the over confusion of the plot.

Additionally, the movie did not stay true to the book. The book showed how Meg changed in detail. In the movie, Meg realized how to fight the darkness early on, which wrapped up the movie a lot quicker.

The major highlights of this movie were the graphics and wardrobe. All the settings of the planets in “A Wrinkle in Time” were realistic and appealing. Also, Winfrey, Witherspoon, and Kaling’s outfits changed at every planet and the detail of each design was intricate.

Overall, I gave “A Wrinkle in Time” two and a half out of five stars for the boring plot and the fact it did not stay true to the book, but had amazing special effects and costume design.
