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

Despite Jacob Tremblay's talent and commitment to the character, filming still had its challenges, the most significant being that he was only allowed to work nine hours maximum per day. Given these time constraints, Arjen Tuiten knew from the start that his makeup design would need to be applied in half the time it usually takes for a transformation of this complexity. Tuiten and his team overcame those challenges using a few creative ideas and were able to get the application time down to 75 minutes. "Michael Nickiforek, a Vancouver makeup artist, helped me apply the makeup," said Tuiten. "And we were always trying to make it as comfortable as we could for Jacob." To keep things fun, he added, "When the makeup came off every day, we'd run around, play little pranks and jokes." See more »

Great Movie For All Ages
18 November 2017 | by cthom1989See all my reviews

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!
