Director Ava DuVernay’s newest endeavor, “A Wrinkle in Time,” takes a departure from her usual, heavy, historical-based topics — “Selma” followed the Montgomery, Ala., voting rights marches and “13th” covered the 13th amendment — and embarks on a magical journey filled with beauty, love and a young girl’s strength and courage.
This departure just might be what audiences are in need of given the darkness of world events that surround us.
DuVernay interprets author Madeleine L’Engle’s novel “A Wrinkle in Time,” staring the young Storm Reid as Meg, a precocious young girl whose parents are prolific astrophysicists, breaking boundaries and bending minds in new directions. She’s joined by a powerful supporting cast including Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling (“The Office”), Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw (“Doctor Who”) and Levi Miller (“Pan”), plus recent newcomer to the screen Deric McCabe.
