The film adaptation of R.J. Palacio’s novel Wonder, which stars Jacob Tremblay (Room), Julia Roberts, and Owen Wilson, has been released. The novel tells the story of Auggie, a young boy with a facial deformity known as Treacher Collins Syndrome, and how it affects him as he enters a mainstream school.
SYNOPSIS: Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie’s extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.
