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.

Quotes

Mrs. Whatsit: In all the one of who you are now. In the glory of everything you are becoming. In all that you feel, you have something the darkness does not have. Can never have, my darling.
Meg Murry: What? What is it?
Mrs. Whatsit: It is only yours if you find it for yourself.

See if You Are Not Afraid of a Few Modifications

A Wrinkle in Time - where do I start? The book, in itself, is one of the most fabulous, imaginative, fantastical stories ever penned. Madeleine L'Engle is a writing genius. The book opened up whole new worlds for me, and taught me (in the forth grade) that it was all right to have imaginings beyond anything ever heard of. Now, close to graduation, I watched this, excited, but prepared to be disappointed. I rarely was. This was a fine production - the child actors quite good, I thought - no gorgeous child actors were cast, and I noticed no huge personality changes. Meg doesn't wear spectacles, and there are other similar changes. The end is a bit altered, but it didn't bother me too much. This is a good adaptaion, but not for L'Engleites. You need to be flexible - one form is a novel, one is a film. A book can be directed toward a small group of people, but a film has to be marketable to everyone. See it if you like fantasy and enjoy Madeleines books.
