A joyous family drama with a powerful message and a main character who’s anything but ordinary.
August “Auggie” Pullman (Jacob Tremblay, ROOM) has never had it easy. Born with a facial disfigurement and frequently confined to hospital, his life would be tough even if he didn’t have to interact with others. As he settles into his new school, Auggie faces scorn and bullying from those around him.
But Auggie doesn’t take that lying down. Through his unsinkable optimism and sheer charisma, Auggie instead commits himself to showing his new peers that personality isn’t just skin deep. His will is courageous; his kindness, contagious.
Child acting sensation Tremblay is joined by co-stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson as Auggie’s parents, as well as Mandy Patinkin (THE PRINCESS BRIDE) and Daveed Diggs (Broadway’s HAMILTON) as his teachers. Based on the novel by R.J. Palacio, WONDER is a joyous family drama with a powerful message and a main character who’s anything but ordinary.
