Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to discover their compassion and acceptance, Auggie's extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can't blend in when you were born to stand out.Written by
Isabel's (Julia Roberts') thesis is titled "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 Red Dragon (2002). 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 »

I loved this movie! I was expecting this movie to be a child's version of the classic "Elephant Man" but it was so much more. Delving into different aspects of Auggie's life and developing the characters around him.
This was brilliantly done and has a positive message for all ages and all walks of life. I highly recommend it for anyone!
