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.
