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
Most audiences don't realize that every inch of Jacob Tremblay, from head to shoulders, was covered in silicone prosthetics, including dental prosthetics, contact lenses, and a wig to complete the look. Arjen Tuiten and the team also had to ensure everything was flexible, to contend with the reality that Jacob was still a growing boy. "What an amazing actor. The other kids are great too, but Jacob is something special," said Tuiten. "Even if he never does prosthetic makeup again, this character will have a special place in his heart. He'll go on to be famous and handsome and you know, all those things, but 'Auggie' will forever be immortalized on the screen. He'll outlive us all." See more »

A wonderful family film
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
