‘Wonder is a superhero movie’
Actor Julia Roberts called her new film Wonder a superhero movie. The film also stars actor Jacob Tremblay, who plays Auggie Pullman, a young boy born with a rare genetic disorder named Treacher Collins, reported Contactmusic.
The 50-year-old actor plays the role of Tremblay’s mother in the movie. “Wonder is a superhero movie because Auggie is a superhero. I read it with my kids, I loved it, they loved it. I hurled myself on the mercy of the producers and said, ‘Please, let me be in this movie. I want to be the mom’,” said Roberts.
“It is such a powerful way of telling how one should behave. It reminded me to find moments in every day to choose the nice approach with other people,” she added.
BASED ON A 2012 NOVEL OF THE SAME NAME, THE MOVIE HAS BEEN DIRECTED BY STEPHEN CHBOSKY
