A WRINKLE IN TIME
Great multi-racial casting, the lead young female, Storm Reid, is an especially delightful discovery, as are Levi Miller and Deric McCabe. And Gugu Mbatha-Raw is always great, as are others, but the writing and directing are unfortunately underwhelming. And Oprah and Reese Witherspoon are misused, (though Mindy Kaling and Zack Galafianakis supply some much needed relief). Maybe the kids will love it. I didn't, though I wanted so much to.
