REVIEW: Wonder (2017)

Born with a rare medical facial disfigurement, science obsessed August ‘Auggie’ Pullman (Tremblay) has spent his early years under a toy astronaut’s helmet, home-schooled by his mother, Isabel (Roberts). Approaching the start of fifth grade, Isabel and husband Nate (Wilson) make the decision to send Auggie to middle-school. As we know, school can be an unforgiving place; but amidst the teasing, tears, and tantrums, there are timely teachings and touching companionships to be found.
