    What a movie. Inspiring, saddening, funny and above all so beautiful. I absolutely loved this movie it was such a beautiful story and the actors were perfect for the roles they played. The movie follows the journey of a young Auggie, who suffers from facial deformities and is beginning his life in real school, starting at middle school. Life is hard for Auggie, he is faced with the challenges of bullying but with his new friends by his side, he can handle everything thrown his way, well almost. This is a gorgeous family movie that inspires you to always choose kind. I recommend this movie to people aged 8+, I rate this movie a 10/10 🙂

  2. I went I saw this movie with a friend last year and we just loved it, however we did cry many times throughout the movie, simply because it is just beautiful. Wonder is a movie based on the book, and one scene is from Auggie and Me. It is about a boy named August who has a deformed face. He’s been homeschooled his whole life, but now he is going to middle school for the first time. One day, he goes up to the school for a tour. There, he meets 3 kids. Julian, Charlotte, and Jack. All of them are really nice except Julian. On the first day of school, everyone stares at him. His only friend is Jack. Also, his sister, Via, her best friend has changed. I love this movie, but it is a little sad 😦 The emotions just pull you and your ride the story of Auggie. I would rate Wonder 5 stars, it is an inspiration movie that really does touch the heart and pulls on your emotions. Don’t forget to have the tissues with you for this amazing watch!

  3. I went to see this movie last year with school and it was one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen. The characters were portrayed really well and they linked in well with the personas they were given in the book. It was a real emotional roller coaster and the whole cinema was cheering, crying and laughing together. The movie is full of some really inspirational quotes that convey the movie’s main theme: being different is a blessing. I really liked how they showed different perspectives from each character so we were able to see how Auggie influenced their lives. This feature was also nice so that we could get a bit of justification regarding each of their actions. My favourite character was Jack Will because even though he did something wrong that hurt Auggie’s feelings, he justified this by standing up for him when he was being bullied by Jullian. Great film that I recommend to all, whether you have read the book or not.

    I have just only recently watched this movie and wow is it sad, during some of the scenes I couldn’t stop crying and I don’t even know why. This movie really makes you connect with the character and learn about himself, his life and his adoring family. my favourite character was Auggie because he is just so strong and resilient by the end of the movie, for someone to be that resilient to bullies and other kids his age would be really hard and disheartening. I believe that Auggie is one of the bravest characters I have ever been able to connect with because his life would have so many more challenges compared to us and unfortunately there aren’t many people supporting hm though his journey. although I loved this movie I preferred the book, but it was great to have a visual of all the characters.

    Wonder is such an inspiring and fantastic movie!! The story line of the movie is to not judge people on how they look just because they might be different. I think this is a message that needs to get to everyone and thats why I think everyone needs to see it! It is a movie suitable for the whole family and perfect for a family movie night. My favourite character is easily Auggie because of how he learns to accept himself and not let others judgements get to him. I would rate Wonder a 8/10 and recommend everyone to go see it if they haven’t already!!

  7. The movie wonder is an emotional rollercoaster. The movie is about a boy named Auggie and he has just started his first year of school after being homeschooled his whole life. Auggie was born with a deformed face and this movie has shown me how tough life would be for Auggie. I feel sorry for Auggie because everyone was so quick to judge, but just because he has a different face doesn’t mean he’s not like the rest of them. I loved the way Auggie was so strong throughout this and found friends who accepted him for who he is.

    I have 1 word to describe this film…. WOW!!! I loved watching this film, it is so emotional yet funny and will definately make you laugh and cry at the same time. The film wonder is about a boy called Auggie who has a facial deformity and doesn’t fit in with the rest of his class mates. I think this film is so heart touching and will definately make you cry. My favourite character is Auggie because he is very shy however, he learns that being different is a good thing and that his looks shouldn’t get in the way of achieving anything. I would have to say that this film is one of my favourites and I would really recomend seeing it (if you haven’t already). I have already seen this film 3 times and i’m sure that if you read the book or watch the film once, you will 100% want to see it again!!!! 9/10!!!

    This is an emotional movie. There are positive messages throughout the film. Auggie is a ten year old boy with a facial difference. After being homeschooled all his life, he enters grade five public school. My thoughts during the movie were about respect and treating others the way you want to be treated. In some scenes I felt sad for Auggie. I was every emotion when watching this.

    This movie ‘ wonder ‘ defiantly wasn’t as good as the book. But i loved it.
    The movie was about a young boy August Pullman who has face deformation he is starting a new school his mum used to home school him until he was in 5th grade and he started school. he talked the same walked the same just looked vey different from the other children at his school. despite getting bullied from another boy at school and being stared at and teased about he finds nice friends who look out for him. but little as everyone knew auggie was very smart he was interested in science and space.
    this movie makes you think about how it would be to be in auggies shoes and that just because you look different doesn’t mean you can’t be a normal kid. i really loved this book and highly recommend it.

  12. Wonder is a gorgeous movie that follows a young boy, Auggie Pullman. He has a face deformation that causes him to get severely judged by many people he encounters. When he decides that he is ready to go out into the public and go to school, he manages to make some friends who don’t care what he looks like and love him for who he is. These friends help him to overcome all of the judgment and he is very grateful for that. The director of the movie has done a great job to show how everyone in his life is affected by this and also how Auggie has influenced his life. Overall, this is a great heartwarming film that will guarantee make you want to watch it another 10+ times.

    I really enjoyed the movie because it was different to the book and it added in parts that the book didn’t have. The movie was made really well but I still think the book was better. My favourite part is when he won the academic medal because it really showed all his bullies he is just as smart and just as normal. My favourite character in the movie was Auggie because he was funny, smart and even though he got bullied he didn’t change his personality. I can relate to Auggie because his dog died and my dog died as well. My least favourite part of the book was when the dog died and when Jack made fun of Auggie on Halloween because it was really hard on Auggie and it made the audience cry. I wouldn’t change anything about it because I think it was made very well. I would recommend this movie to people who enjoy a good movie that teaches you a lesson. This book teaches you about bullying and why you shouldn’t do it and the effects it has on people. I loved the way that this movie shows everyone around Auggie and how he influenced their lives. His first year of school was hard but he pulled through it. Auggie is really inspiring to me because he was so strong through it all.

  14. this movie is extremely inspiring and heartfelt. this movie is about a little boy (about 12) that has face deformities. as you would be thinking it would be very hard for him, and you would be right. this movie shows a boy overcoming bullying and not having self-confidence. I think anybody that is going through rough times should watch this! it is an amazing film showing the importance of family and staying kind even in the hardest times.
    happy watching!

  15. The movie wonder is absolutely amazing and a real tear jerker. Auggie has a face deformation and isn’t the same as everyone else. When Auggie starts school he finds it really hard to fit in but once people learn more about him, they see there is more to him than just his looks. He has a passion for science and loves his astronaut helmet. I love when he builds the video screen for the science project. Overall this movie was really great and the book was also really good. I rate this movie a 10/10!

  16. I absolutely love the movie, Wonder. I thought it had a really interesting storyline and the movie was really similar to the book. The movie was incredibly sad but inspiring to watch. Auggie Pullman is a young boy who has a facial deformation. He isn’t ‘normal’ looking and is bullied by the kids at his school and judged by people outside of school. Once people get to know him they realise that there is more to him than his appearance. He is an incredibly smart boy who has an interest in science and space. I love how all of the characters are portrayed and the movie shows how Auggie has influenced other peoples lives. When Auggie was going to school on his first day, his sister Via says to him, “You can’t fit in when you were born to stand out.” I love this quote because it shows how some simple words can make someone more confident and it shows how being different is not something to be ashamed of. I would recommend this movie to almost everyone, young or old. It is an amazing movie and very emotional. I rate this an 8/10.

  17. Wonder is about a kid named Auggie who was born with a deformed face. He has been homeschooled for his whole life, and is now starting year 5. Auggie is going to a real school for the first time, so he is very nervous. Some kids ignore him, some are just plain mean to him, and only a couple of kids are kind to him. The mean ones call him a freak, and play a game called ‘The Plague’. ‘The Plague’ is a game where if you touch Auggie, you have to wash your hands within 10 seconds or else you die. But Jack and Summer are 2 of the few kids who accept Auggie for who he is, and they become his best friends, and only friends! Throughout the book, Auggie faces hard times and easy times. By the end of the year Auggie is treated fairly by everyone (except Julian, the leader of the bullies!), and is even considered ‘cool’.
    I read the book before I saw the movie and I am in love with them both. I’ve read it twice and seen it twice. I am not much of a cryer, but this made me cry!
    I’ve also read the next book, ‘Auggie & Me’, twice. It isn’t a sequel, but it tells the stories of 3 characters from Wonder. The stories are about Julian (the main bully), Christopher (Auggie’s first friend who moved away), and Charlotte (who was asked to be one of Auggie’s welcome buddies at the start of the year). In Wonder, you don’t really know any of these character’s backgrounds. I love learning about how they see the situation, and how there was so much stuff happening that wasn’t even mentioned in Wonder!
    Overall, I love the storyline, and think it is an eye-opener for everyone, no matter how old they are.

  18. wonder is such great movie. i had read the book already and the movie just topped it off. i really helped me see the story line a lot better.
    it shows us lots of messages and that even through one person might look different it doesn’t matter because we are all the same on the inside. we got to see most the the issues auggie had to face and my favourite thing i took from the movie was to “chose mind” it is a sad movie but i would defiantly recommend it ps. read the book first 🙂

    this movie would have to be the most sweetest and cutes film. when it got to the very end of the movie i started to cry it was very emotional and sad. on Auggies first day i was almost balling my eye out everyone was so rude and obnoxious if i was there i would go save him and do anything i could. this will probably be a very popular movie. everyone should watch this movie back and see what our world looks like because this is what it looks like everyone is judging others and not being considerate. so i rate it a 10/10

    Personally, this movie pulls a few heartstrings.
    My brother’s best friend has the exact same condition as beautiful Auggie, a 10-year-old boy with treacher collins syndrome.
    Wonder is such an amazing movie. It teaches you to always be yourself and that it’s good to be different, even though at times it may not seem like it.
    It also teaches the viewer to be grateful for what you have and to stand up for yourself.
    I absolutely adore this film – it tells us about Auggie but also has the P.O.V of his family members which is quite relatable.
    I recommend this book to anyone suffering from any self-issues and any girls who want to read a heartfelt, emotional book.
    9/10 rating… it’s such a great film, fully recommend it.

  21. I absolutely love this movie! After reading the book I knew I would have to see it when it came out in the cinemas. I thought it had a great storyline and the characters were really well developed. The movie was very moving and I really enjoyed watching it. My favourite part is when Auggie gets an award at the end of the school year, and I think that it was very well deserved. My favourite character was Via, Auggie’s sister because I think that it is very hard to not be noticed by your family and to act like it doesn’t matter that you are not treated fairly. I also really like the quote that was mentioned in the movie “You can’t fit in when you were born to stand out.” I think that this is a really great quote because it is very meaningful and is also very true. I love this movie and would recommend this for people between the ages of 5 – 15 and I would rate it a 10/10.

    Wonder is an amazing inspirational book about a little boy named August who has been home schooled his whole life and now starting in year 5 him and his family have decided to send him to a school. August is ten years old boy and he does the normal things that every other ten year olds do but despite 27 operations, he will never look normal. When August begins at middle school, he is nervous. His is not only nervous for the same reason as every other child in his new class but because August cannot walk down the corridor without being stared at. This is a very inspirational book that is definitely worth reading. I would recommend this movie to everyone!

  23. Wonder is not only my favourite movie but also my favourite book and when I realised that it was becoming a movie I was so excited and I knew I had to see it straight away. It is about Auggie who has been born with a deformed face meaning that he is a lot different to the other kids. His differences and struggles have always made him not want to go to school, however his parents have decided that it is best for him to start and it may help him. This movie showcases the hardships that people with such differences have compared to every kids and the way it can effect them. Although Auggie struggles, he still proves his heart and determination to show how he can overcome his physical appearance and be the best version of himself. This movie is really life changing for any one who watches it as it really makes you think about and consider who you are and also the gifts you are given. I would give this movie a 9/10 as I absolutely love it!

I would recommend watching this amazing movie to everyone because it’s just the best movie ever.

  25. The movie Wonder is a very kind and inspiring movie. It is based on the book Wonder that tells the inspiring story of Auggie. Auggie was born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a normal school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of friend when he enters fifth grade. His family and his new classmates all struggle to find their acceptance, but Auggie’s adventure will teach them all and that you can’t judge a book by its cover.

  26. This movie is by far one of the best movies ever, the way the storyline is set out in the movie is amazing it basically shows every side of the story to a family with some problems. The story is so heartwarming and I am sorry if you don’t cry in this movie then something is just wrong with you. This movie is one to watch with the whole family and you have to watch it all through or it just isn’t as good as could be. The cast is amazing which includes Jacob Tremblay (August Pullman), Julia Roberts (Isabel Pullman), Owen Wilson (Nate Pullman) and so many more amazing cast members that are just perfectly chosen and make the movie even better than it already is.

    I absolutely LOVED this movie. This movie was about a boy called Auggie who had facial differences and didn’t look as ‘normal’ as other people. He had gone through multiple surgeries so he didn’t start school until the 5th Grade. He faced some difficulties at school including bulling and feeling left out. People only judged him by his appearance but once they got to know him they realised he is very intelligent and funny. This is a very sad movie but the most inspirational movie I have ever seen. I thought it was a very motivational movie that proves that no matter what you look like you are still beautiful and very intelligent. I would 100% recommend this movie.

    Such an amazing movie, I love how strong you can become without knowing you have the strength inside you. I loved it so much because it relates to the real world.
    It was really good to see what others around him saw him as and how one can treat someone and it turns into the whole school.
    Because he was not ‘normal’ looking it was so good to see that even though people would laugh at him, he found a friend that cared for him and then people started to see who he truly was.
    I would definitely recommend this movie to everyone, it teaches everyone to find whats on the inside and its not always about how someone looks.

    This Movie is so amazing, I loved it so much and I would definatley recomend it, like a 10/10. The movie is about a boy named Auggie who has some issues with his face and how he looks. He loves scieance and wants to be an astranot when he grows up, and he wears a asrtonot helmet everywhere. In the begining of the movie he starts out hating school then twards the end he loves it and has so many friends. He goes through some rough times in this movie and it is really heartbreaking but in the end everything turns out well. His family is so supportive of him and I think that it really helps him in his journey going to school. He had home schooled his whole life until when the movie starts. This movie is really great and I would highley highlry recomend it, so if you havent seen it…….You have to

Auggie showed us how brave he was to start school despite getting bullied by one of the boys at his school. He meet some friends that he grew pretty close to. Auggie surprised everyone and ended up winning an award at the end of the year. I loved this movie and could watch it 100 times.

    Auggie Pullman has a face deformation. He isn’t ‘normal’ looking, and is judged very harshly by the kids at his school and the general public. But once people get to know him, they learn that he is more than just his appearance. He is a smart boy who is very interested in science and space.
    I loved the way that this movie shows everyone around Auggie and how he influenced their lives. His first year of real school is stressful for everyone, but they pull through.
    When Auggie is going to his first day of school, his sister Via (short for Olivia) tells him, “You can’t fit in when you were born to stand out.” I love this quote because it really gives confidence and shows that being different is good and if others look down on you it’s their problem.
    I would highly recommend going to see this movie, it was truly amazing! (I also cried the whole way through)
