Storyline

Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to discover their compassion and acceptance, Auggie's extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can't blend in when you were born to stand out. Written by Lionsgate

Trivia

R.J. Palacio got the inspiration to write the book after taking her son out for ice cream, where they saw a child with Treacher Collins Syndrome. Her son cried at the sight of this boy. This story is used in a scene from the film, where Jack Will's mother is reminding him why it's important to make Auggie feel welcome. See more »

Goofs

After the first scene of Auggie in Mr. Browne's 5th grade class (at 0:18:54), the film cuts to a blackboard in the Pullman home showing an algebraic problem of two equations in two unknowns: 3X + 2Y = -4 and 2X + 3Y = 4. The solution to this problem is X = -4 and Y = 4. The solution shown on the blackboard, X = 3 and Y = 3, appears to the the solution of the two equations 3X - Y = 6 and 2X + Y = 9. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Tushman: Auggie can't change how he looks. Maybe we should change how we see.

Great Movie For All Ages
18 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

I loved this movie! I was expecting this movie to be a child's version of the classic "Elephant Man" but it was so much more. Delving into different aspects of Auggie's life and developing the characters around him.

This was brilliantly done and has a positive message for all ages and all walks of life. I highly recommend it for anyone!
