Madeleine L’Engle’s 1962 novel is a sprawling fantasy, encouraging young readers to use their imaginations and embrace individualism.

This movie to Oprah is what Battlefield Earth is to Travolta. Its absolutely terrible. Oprah's power in Hollywood is way beyond anything we imagined as she got this thing distributed worldwide. Maybe she's gone crazy. Either way is crap.

What a beautiful movie this is! If you have daughters or granddaughters - take them to see it! The messages within the film of empowerment, courage, critical thinking and love are so important in this age of young girls growing up with bullying and body shaming.

A Wrinkle in Time is wildly uneven, weirdly suspenseless, and tonally all over the place, relying on wall-to-wall music to supply the missing emotional connection and trowel over huge plot holes.

Ava DuVernay's film adaptation of it catches the sense of exhilaration and wonder that arises from the story's elements of fantasy.

Fans of the book and admirers of Ms. DuVernay's work - I include myself in both groups - can breathe a sigh of relief, and some may also find that their breath has been taken away.

The film has the feel of a iPad video pawned off on a toddler so Dad can make comforting mac and cheese - here's a bite-sized lesson about loving yourself and a jumble of pretty colours.

By turns gorgeous, propulsive and feverishly overwrought, "A Wrinkle in Time" is an otherworldly glitter explosion of a movie, the kind of picture that wears its heart on its tie-dyed sleeve.

Only the faintest glimmers of genuine, earned emotion pierce through the layers of intense calculation that encumber Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle in Time.
