Clint Says: Drop everything and go see this movie now
If the Academy had any sense, they would seriously consider Jacob Tremblay for an Oscar. Unfortunately, they don't have any sense, so that is that.
Good grief, Jacob Tremblay is amazing! He's all of 11 years old and this should be his SECOND Oscar nomination. (He was snubbed during 2015 for his performance in ROOM).
Okay, really, I'm done with that now.
This film is very good, then you add in Jacob Tremblay and it becomes something truly special. He owns this movie! Every scene he is in is better because he is in it!
I'm really trying to get to other points here...
This film is beautiful, heartbreaking, loving, and powerful. It will make you ugly cry and then immediately make you laugh until your stomach hurts. It will also make you see things through different eyes.
This film should be mandatory viewing for all kids 8 and up. It is a helpful tool in showing how people may look different, but their worth is not in their looks. It's a lesson that a lot of adults need as well.
If you are in the mood for a movie that will make you feel, go see WONDER right now.
