A WRIN­KLE IN TIME (PG)

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - WEDDINGS -

DOESN’T GO BY THE BOOK, SO IT ALL GOES TO CREASES, US, 109 MIN A proper adap­ta­tion of the much-loved 1962 book A Wrin­kle in Time by Madeleine L’En­gle has been a long time com­ing. But not ev­ery­one is go­ing to get what the movie is driv­ing at. New­comer Storm Reid stars as Meg Murry, a teen who jour­neys into an al­ter­nate di­men­sion to find her miss­ing fa­ther (Chris Pine). Along the way, Meg reg­u­larly calls upon the an­cient wis­dom of a trio of as­tral guides (Reese Wither­spoon, Mindy Kal­ing, and, umm, a 50m-high Oprah Win­frey). What should have been a con­sum­mate crowd-pleaser is merely a ha­bit­ual head-scratcher.
