It's a very tasteful heart-tugger - a drama of disarmingly level-headed empathy that glides along with wit, assurance, and grace, and has something touching and resonant to say about the current climate of American bullying.

Bullies and frenemies don't get served so much as given quiet moments to confront their own mistakes.

"Wonder" is that rare thing, a family picture that moves and amuses while never overtly pandering.

I respected Wonder immensely. It's an old-fashioned three-hankie sob fest with sassy kids, catchy songs, kind adults and a cute dog.

If you think you will make it through even the trailer without welling up with tears, well of course you won't. Wonder is just that kind of story.

Though its upbeat earnestness is ever-present, it has the integrity to understand that not even kindness can eliminate all problems.

This was one of my fav books a few years ago when it came out. The movie is a great depiction of it and I was pleasantly surprised by who Julia and Owen were good. Shed a few tears. Loved the imaginary elements they included.
