A WRINKLE IN TIME (PG)
DOESN’T GO BY THE BOOK, SO IT ALL GOES TO CREASES, US, 109 MIN
An unorthodox adaptation of much-loved 1962 book A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L’Engle. Newcomer Storm Reid stars as Meg Murry, a lonely, sensitive teen who reluctantly journeys into an alternate dimension with a trio of astral guides (Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and, umm, a 50m-high Oprah Winfrey). Despite a vividly immersive production design, what should have been a crowd-pleaser is merely a habitual head-scratcher.
