Goofs

At the beginning of the scene where Meg decides that she must be the one to go back to get Charles Wallace, her hair is pulled back into a loop bun with only a few hairs loose (at 01:40:41 as she speaks with her father). In one of the shots in the same scene, it is still a loop bun, but there's a considerable amount of hair that is out (at 01:40:58 after her Emily Dickinson quote), and then in the shot right after that, it's back to being neat with only a few hairs out.

Destruction of Classic Novel!
10 May 2004 | by (Utah,USA) – See all my reviews

I have grown up pouring over the intertwined stories of the Wrinkle in Time Chronicles. My dream was that one day a screenwriter would come across their child sitting in a large sofa reading A Winkle in Time, and would think, what an amazing movie this would make. Sadly enough that screenwriter failed, changing characters, throwing in lame humor, and all out destroying the plot. I know that it is a hard task to change a well loved novel into a movie. But why can't you stay true to the book? Why must you change the way characters think and act? For those of you who have not read the book, pick it up, find a soft couch, and let your imagination run wild.
