Synopsis 3 stars out of 4 -- [G]enuinely moving....Uniformly strong performances help ground the story.The music, cheerful and unobtrusive and making liberal use one of the The White Stripes’ nicest song, 'We’re Going To Be Friends,' is nice.WONDER is that rare thing, a family picture that moves and amuses while never overtly pandering.[T]he film does maintain the book's effective structure, which involves telling its story from the perspective of multiple characters, and it’s got a narrative brimming with a variety of serious-seeming problems, all of which are capable of being resolved if people simply acted according to their better natures.The good news is that writer-director Stephen Chbosky sidesteps the more blatantly cloying clichés inherent in the genre and finds a beating heart that mostly transcends the heavy dollops of Hollywood sugarcoating. A first-rate cast doesn't hurt either.Owen Wilson gives one of his most endearing performances in years as Auggie’s dad.3 stars out of 5 -- Roberts is as watchable as ever, her ability to convey complex emotions with a brief look undiminished...[Chbosky] has a gift for understanding young people and the nuances of their relationships. This is drawn out in the performances from the child actors...WONDER brings an upbeat openheartedness to tough questions. Its lessons in compassion and self-acceptance are treacle-free...those lessons pack a universal punch.A ten-year-old boy with a facial deformity (Jacob Tremblay) attends school for the first time when he begins the fifth grade. With the support of his mother (Julia Roberts) and father (Owen Wilson), he learns how to make friends and adjust to his new environment. Meanwhile, those around him learn not to judge a book by its cover. WONDER was directed by Stephen Chbosky (THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER), and was adapted from the best-selling novel by R.J. Palacio.
