With so much material crammed into a 110-minute motion picture, it feels rushed and unfinished.
Saddled with an unevenly paced screenplay and overly reliant on generic CGI, "A Wrinkle in Time" fails to convey the magic of the book.
Functions as a time machine to take the viewer back to the days of “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” while re-introducing the man who functioned as a friend/mentor/father-figure.
U.S. Release Date: 2018-11-16

Director: Steve McQueen
Cast: Viola Davis, Daniel Kaluuya, Brian Tyree Henry, Robert Duvall, Colin Farrell, Cynthia Erivo, Carrie Coon, Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Rodriguez, Liam Neeson
McQueen achieves his aim of using a genre framework to advance serious themes, which makes "Widows" an uncommonly good thriller.
