Storyline

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 Lionsgate

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When Auggie gets off the bus after the trip to the nature preserve and is with his Mom, a blonde Mom in the background to the left is seen walking behind them from the same spot twice. See more »

Feel Good Movie!
16 November 2017 | by mmezajrSee all my reviews

I absolutely fell in love with the story of this movie. I went to the premier last night and didn't really know what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised. I don't consider myself an emotional movie watcher but I almost lost it 3 times and I laughed more than I could remember. The story line was very easy to follow along. I did not lose interest not one time. I was so impressed with the children actors. A very beautifully written and directed movie. Must watch for the whole family.
