Jacob Tremblay and his family went to the Children's Craniofacial Association retreat, where he got to meet and befriend children with Treacher Collins syndrome, the same syndrome that Auggie has. See more »
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 »
I absolutely fell in love with the story of this movie. I went to the premier last night and didn't really know what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised. I don't consider myself an emotional movie watcher but I almost lost it 3 times and I laughed more than I could remember. The story line was very easy to follow along. I did not lose interest not one time. I was so impressed with the children actors. A very beautifully written and directed movie. Must watch for the whole family.
