“How ‘Wrinkle in Time’ Refuses to Conform”

Recently, I took it upon myself as a journalist, a critic, and a writer to re-read A Wrinkle in Time, the ol’ Madeleine L’Engle book, in preparation for A Wrinkle in Time, the new Ava DuVernay adaptation. (I actually covered the story years back, when Disney hired Jennifer Lee to write it, so I’ve been procrastinating on this re-read f0r a while.) 

While watching DuVernay’s movie made me smile; it’s a perfectly non-conforming movie based on a story about non-conformity. It’s L’Engle’s book done in a style that’s completely unlike hers. I think if she could see the film today, she’d probably smile about that, too.

I dug into this for The Hollywood Reporter, by the way. Just thought I’d leave that out there.
