Children don’t get to decide how pretty they are when they’re born, yet how they behave determines how beautiful they become. Auggie, a 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay, Room) with craniofacial differences, has been homeschooled his whole life. His parents (Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson) say he’s now ready to enter a mainstream middle school—but is middle school ready for him? Based on a bestselling children’s novel, Stephen Chbosky’s (Perks of Being a Wallflower) second feature is an unusually thoughtful gem about the power of kindness and family.
