Movie trailer review, A Wrinkle in Time (2018). The premise of A Wrinkle in Time seems quite “unrealistic”—in perhaps simplifying issues young people face of missing parents who may or may not turn up. But in a sense, it may be a theme worth it’s while.
The trailer of A Wrinkle in Time features a young black woman (Storm Reid) whose father has disappeared. He’s a scientist who has perfected instantaneous time travel, but his disappearance has caused a hole in her heart.
Something’s missing in her life that hasn’t been filled. However, Meg’s given the opportunity to find her father with the help of angelic-like beings (guardian angels perhaps)—most notably played by Reese Witherspoon and Oprah Winfrey in the trailer.
Another time and place is replete with danger and the fantastical (read: big budget). There’s a popular song running through this trailer that adds to a feel-good, optimistic feel.
May be this trailer is saying to young woman to not give up on finding what’s missing. Perseverance in finding one’s long lost family is surely a worthwhile endeavour.
Some of us may agree and others won’t. I guess it depends on who you are.
Meg’s told to have faith in herself as she searches for her Dad through deathly obstacles. It seems faith in herself will help her overcome these obstacles. The idea may be a bit New Age in that respect.
The trailer’s okay, its palette of colour stands out, but does not convince me to believe in the idea and come on board.
