Disney has done it again.
They killed it.
I don’t normally do blog posts or reviews on movies, but given that the girl next to me (who I didn’t know from Adam) and I were crying like we had just been proposed to, I figured it was a necessary post.
I remember reading A Wrinkle in Time in my seventh grade English class. It was my first year in Maryland, in a new school. I so directly related to this novel, I ended up teaching the class the meaning. This is something I’m famous for. Teaching, and not always where I’m wanted to teach. But this novel, and definitely this movie touches upon just that.
Your flaws arent the darkest parts of you. They aren’t meant to be held down or restrained. Learning to live with your flaws, and more importantly love them and embrace them, will help you find your full potential.
On the surface, A Wrinkle in Time is about a family whose love for Quantum Physics leads them into alternate dimensions. Deeper into this novel, it’s about finding ones true power. Disney’s choice of actors to play the Ms’s was spot on. With Reese Witherspoon and Oprah Winfrey leading the helm of the mystical women, it was as if dreams had become true.
My drive home from the movies was one filled with pep talks. Professionally, I aspire to be women like them. To be able to give so freely, to inspire, to lead kind, compassionate women. My pep talk was so big, so grand, I decided I’m going to meet both of these women.
All from a Disney’s adaptation of “A Wrinkle in Time”.
I encourage you to go watch this movie. Even more so, I encourage you to dream big, reach for the stars, and give yourself a pep talk each and every morning till the impossible becomes possible.
The wound is the place where the light enters you
