The New Face of Wonder, Meant to Inspire Us All
Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.
Now that I have your attention, prepare yourself for the reality that they are your parents. Well, not literally your reality, but that these two are parents in the cinematic reality for the new film Wonder. The two acclaimed actors, for similar and different reasons, play the part of parents to a young boy (Jacob Tremblay).
Quick note: The casting of Wonder is incredible.
From the trailer (seen below), the characters portrayed by Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson have a young son who has endured scarring plastic surgery that resulted in an improved, yet still slightly disfigured face.
In other words, the son is different.
And in elementary school (and middle school…and high school…and so on…), people who act and appear differently face challenges that can paralyze all things social. For anybody who has felt or feels that way, Lionsgate Movies has produced a film that will inspire new wonder to your world.
This movie is set to take off into a heartwarming galaxy when it hits theaters this November.
