'A Wrinkle in Time' has diverse cast that uplifts overall underwhelming film

New move Jesse Lingard and Paul Pogba of Manchester United did the'Wakanda Forever salute from the film Black Panther during their match against Chelsea on February 25

And 13th quickly became one of Netflix's most watched documentaries, and picked up both the Emmy Award for Outstanding Documentary and another Oscar nomination for Best Documentary (The movie allegedly had a budget of $1 million, but earnings figures are unclear since most of it came from Netflix royalties.). This means it was OK for the studio to release it just a few weeks after "Black Panther" - the movies were going for somewhat different audiences, so they wouldn't compete against each other - but it also meant it wouldn't be almost as popular as the Marvel film. Which (Oprah Winfrey). She later tells Meg, "I am a part of the universe, just like you, Meg".

Let's talk about the castingPhoto Mindy Kaling in "A Wrinkle in Time". The worlds are expansive and varied and would be interesting if the film stuck to them for more than 10 minutes at a time. I mean who doesn't love that moment when Dorothy realizes what she searched for in Oz was inside her all the time? "She goes on this attractive journey and finds herself and becomes more accepting and learns that she is worthy of being loved".

The movie makes it clear that love is the frequency that allows for Tesseract travel, and the reason Meg has so much trouble with it is because of the anger she holds onto.

Despite the mixed-to-negative reviews and the subpar box-office performance, "A Wrinkle in Time" does stumble into some history making. In the film, there's a black cloud that seems to be alive and spreading, but it's not named.

As of Friday evening, A Wrinkle in Time was tracking for an above-$40 million debut this weekend, while Black Panther was looking to cross the $1 billion mark.

She wrestles with her own insecurities, faults and feelings of self-doubt through the film. The claim could be made that this makes the film skew slightly younger in its reach, the purity of it feels like a necessary shift towards modernizing and understanding the very young adults these films center around and are made for.

Winfrey's character, remains solid and reliable.

"A Wrinkle in Time" reminds me of a dream. In the movie, the Happy Medium is played by Zach Galifianakis. While L'Engle's book, published in 1962, isn't explicitly concerned with the rules of society (the protagonists' journey does hinge on giving humanity a fighting chance against evil) it does feature a myriad of hefty science fiction ideas to buy into alongside its focus on love and forgiveness. The line isn't my favorite way of summing up the film's message, which I think could be more aptly said as "you matter". I didn't expect a whole lot from it. This is what happened to Charles Wallace who is adopted in the film versus being the biological child of the Murrys in the book.

But Rian Johnson - who helmed the 2017 "The Last Jedi" movie - admitted it's time for a woman or a person of colour to tell a story in a galaxy far, far away.

"A Wrinkle in Time" consistently raises more questions than it answers.The movie never explains what exactly is going on, and the audience is left in the dark as to how this interdimensional travel works. DuVernay trailed off, then found her voice.

The movie starring Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Minday Kaling, Chris Pine and newcomer Storm Reid grossed another $6.3 million overseas in six territories, so it still has a lot of room to grow its global audience. Even though I grew up during the '90s, which had plenty of black programming, I still never really saw myself, a girl who was intensely unsure of herself, insecure, and self-degrading.
