Born with facial differences, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. Based on the New York Times bestseller by Raquel Jaramillo, under the pen name of R. J. Palacio.

“There are plenty of movies in which the fate of the world hangs in the balance, but “Wonder” sticks close to the daily problems of childhood, working through them with sensitivity. It’s not as easy as saying “choose kindness,” but it is that simple.”

– Jake Coyle for Associated Press
