A Wrinkle in Time

Demi Lovato and DJ Khaled appear at The Grove in Los Angeles in Nov. 2017

She's been so beaten down by circumstances, that even when "magical" women - Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), Mrs.

MONDELLO: She is in fact a quote machine as played by Mindy Kaling. "It's about putting one step in front of another, about forward movement to where you wanna be".

Do we say they're away at school?

As Disney releases the big screen adaptation of "A Wrinkle in Time", the history behind its religious controversy has once again surfaced. When the Mrses depart, they leave behind shimmering altruism and narrow insight.

Madeline L'Engle's "A Wrinkle in Time" debuted in 1962 and received immediate success.

"A Wrinkle in Time" is in theaters now.

"Because it is not just one thing".

This is a science fiction/fantasy romp that will engage families. It was a trifle obvious, particularly when this version of 1984 could be countered by reciting the Declaration of Independence and the Gettysburg Address, but in stripping out many details of how IT holds sway, screenwriters Jennifer Lee and Jeff Stockwell leave nothing more than the standard-issue intrinsic evil of any old apocalyptic action movie.

So, take this film for what it is and don't try to make it what it isn't. It wears an earnest message on its sleeve ― believe in yourself and love those around you, and you'll achieve your goals ― and leaves the fundamental building blocks at the door. With that film, DuVernay became the first African-American female director ever to be nominated for a Golden Globe. And while the visuals are spectacular, DuVernay's treatment feels too clinical, leaving out the sense of wonder and discovery that should accompany such a film. Even when working with a major studio and a major property, she has made a movie that's completely her own, flaws and all. This pretty movie feels convenient rather than meaningful.

The film depicts Meg as brilliant, but terribly hurt due to her NASA scientist dad (played by Chris Pine) having gone missing for four years, while school, and life in general, sucks. And then just saying, you know, we are not trying to do the book. Sure, that's fun. Oprah's stentorian boom delivering pithy counsel straight out of a "Super Soul Sunday" episode? Can't complain. "Scandal" veteran Bellamy Young popping up as a robotic Stepford wife in a dystopian cul-de-sac?

Charles Wallace is adorable. Well, Michael Peña's always been an amusing actor to watch, at least. It's not fair. So the twins were one of the first to go.

In her book, "Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art", she wrote, "Faith is what makes life bearable, with all its tragedies and ambiguities and sudden, startling joys". But the limited cohesiveness only underscores how cloying its messaging can be. It's a story that fights against the constraints of childhood, when helplessness is a natural construct. The team includes Director of Photography Tobias Schliessler, Production Designer Naomi Shohan, Film Editor Spencer Averick and Costume Designer Paco Delgado. But then we talked about being teenagers. When a story like A Wrinkle in Time doesn't warm you up, there are two realities: you're either cold-blooded or it didn't convince.

That's not the goal of "Wrinkle", though.

Oprah said she loved her return to acting.

It's possible I'm too hardened to appreciate the earnestness on display here.

However, following the ridicule and scorn of the scientific community when they present their findings, Alex takes matters into his own hands to actually test the calculations and ends up tessering across the universe in a split second of time.
