"When given a choice between being right and being kind, choose kind."
Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade.
As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to discover their compassion and acceptance, Auggie's extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can't blend in when you were born to stand out.
Directed by Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) and starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Mandy Patinkin, Daveed Diggs and Oscar nominee Jacob Tremblay (Room) as Auggie, WONDER is a delightful film for all the family with the overriding message for us all to "choose kind".

"The slogan "choose kind" is not just a tagline; it's a byword for our times and I wish more movies would preach that message. Wonder is a beautiful movie." LEONARDMALTIN.COM
"The story is inherently emotional, but Chbosky conveys its compassionate message - "be kind" - without manipulation or false sentiment."
"Unrecognizable under the prosthetics and the makeup, Jacob Tremblay is indeed wondrous as Auggie." CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
