The fantasy adventure film ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ has just premiered and with it has come a lot of recognition and praise for both its diverse and inclusive cast but also those behind the scenes. Director Ava DuVernay is especially thrilled at the credit now being given to black and female filmmakers.
On March 9, the brand new movie that is trying its best to move the boundaries of ethnical bigotry in the world has premiered.
A Wrinkle in Time (2018) tells the story about a little girl called Meg. After the disappearance of her scientist father, three peculiar beings send Meg, her brother and her friend to space in order to find him.
A Wrinkle in Time (2018) is based on a novel by Madeleine L'Engle and it was written for the screen by Jennifer Lee and Jeff Stockwell.
Ava DuVernay directed this movie.
DuVernay has worked on many big screen titles before, and she is mostly known for directing Selma (2014), about Martin Luther King Jr., and his campaign to secure equal voting rights via an epic march from Selma to Montgomery.
This time, DuVernay wants to make a point, by introducing a strong, female character of African-American origin.
Meg is played by a young and aspiring actress Storm Reid, and the rest of the cast is equally amazing: Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, Michael Pena and Zac Galifianakis.
