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!
