Re: “Movie Review: 'Wonder' Promotes Kindness With Schmaltz

The movie honors the book. The reviewer fails to realize the book is aimed at 5th graders. The film was made so kids 9 and up could see a family film together. And the film delivers. There are funny, light scenes. Heartwarming scenes. And a few poignant scenes too.

The performances were solid. My daughter loved the book and the film. I smiled and wiped my eyes for 2 hours straight.

Wilson's role is underwritten because the Mom and Dad are minor characters in the book. The book is written through the eyes of the children and teens.

After reading the review, I can only wonder if a small child reviews an Oscar Winning drama and calls it a bore, Does that mean the movie stinks? If a 92-year-old Grandma with no interest in Superhero movies pans the recent Spiderman film, does that mean Marvel movies stink? This critic fails to recognize the film was made for families.

Wonder deserves 4 Stars if you like happy/sad family films. And 3 stars if family films are not your cup of tea.
