In this adaptation of R.J. Palacio's bestselling children's novel of the same name, breakout star Jacob Tremblay (Room) delivers a masterful performance as Auggie Pullman is a young boy born with a facial deformity who tries to fit in at a new school.

Please note: Screenings of Wonder will begin promptly at the advertised start time, as there will not be any pre-film adverts.

Surprisingly philosophical about the stares and bullying meted out by his peers, Auggie is determined to persuade his taunting schoolmates that the old adage "beauty is only skin deep" remains true, while his fiercely supportive parents (Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson) do their utmost to ease his difficult passage through fifth grade and beyond. 

Well versed in the subtleties and awkwardness of youth-based emotional drama, director Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) does a fine job empathising with Auggie's dilemma, but ultimately it's Jacob Tremblay's film.

Duration: 113 mins

Director: Stephen Chbosky. Starring: Jacob Tremblay, Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson. USA 2017.
