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
