Andrea Thompson reviews “A Wrinkle in Time” for The Young Folks


In Disney’s A Wrinkle In Time, it is not freedom, science, religion, or the great battle between good and evil that is really important. No, it’s the self esteem of the main protagonist Meg (Storm Reid). A strange choice since the book it’s based on is about a journey through time and space that effortlessly fuses science, religion, and art. It seems Disney doesn’t exactly know how to tell a story where the girl is not the one with a destiny and special powers. Rather, it is her brother, Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe) who is gifted and thus desired by the forces of evil.
