Isabel's thesis is entitled "The Fourth Oder of Vision in the Illuminated Books of William Blake". Many of Blake's illustrations are of people dealing with the grotesque on a deep, emotional level; and many others are related to salvation and spiritually uplifting themes. Both are themes that tie into the character's family life. Blake is best known to movie audiences as the illustrator of the dragon in the Hannibal Lecter film [Link: tt0289765]. See more »
After the first scene of Auggie in Mr. Browne's 5th grade class (at 0:18:54), the film cuts to a blackboard in the Pullman home showing an algebraic problem of two equations in two unknowns: 3X + 2Y = -4 and 2X + 3Y = 4. The solution to this problem is X = -4 and Y = 4. The solution shown on the blackboard, X = 3 and Y = 3, appears to the the solution of the two equations 3X - Y = 6 and 2X + Y = 9. See more »
Simply put, this is the perfect family film for all ages. Outstanding acting by little Canadian phenom Jacob Tremblay as well as a great supporting cast. Very well written and directed. A must see film. 9/10 from me
