"Wonder" is a Best on the New York Times best seller and now it's in theaters.  It came out a couple of weeks ago and I went to see it this weekend.

This movie, "Wonder" is about a boy named August who was born with a facial deformity.  My daughter's school had a special screening of this movie early Saturday morning.  Before I go into the movie and give you a little look inside the movie - this movie is all about choosing kindness.  Every kid from about the age of 8 and up should see this movie.  The boy that plays August Pullman, the main character, is amazing.  His parents played by Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson were so relate-able and believable, from his sister and their adorable dog.  It was all about the friends and school and how everyone looks at something and judges, in the movie, he was said to have had the plague by a lot of his classmates.  You probably already know how it will end, but from the minute I sat down until the ending credits, I was blown away from this little boy who wears an astronaut helmet to cover his face.

Kindness truly out-weighs anything we battle with in our life.  It will make you think about yourself and hope you're not a Julian and hope you're more of a Jack Will or Principal Tushman.  Grab the tissues, enjoy this one!  It's amazing how this movie pulls all emotions out and you want more, you'll want to strive to be a better person - I hope, I know I do.  There are so many quotes from this movie, this one hit me as they're walking August to his first day of school his sister Via whispers to him, "If they stare, let them stare.  You can't blend in when you were born to stand out."

What did you think of the movie?  Did you see it yet?
