Movie Alert: 'Wonder'The young actor Jacob Tremblay, wearing mask-like makeup that rearranges his features, gracefully inhabits the role of Auggie not only by showing his pain and vulnerability, but also by convincing us of one of the secret weapons of R. The books-versus-movies battle is not usually a fair fight: The visual is the best developed of our senses, and as such it tends to dominate. Perhaps its greatest power resides exclusively in the province of literature. What I think helped this book catch fire is that a compelling visual mystery lies at its core, and you have to solve it for yourself, completely within the confines of your own imagination. As the book begins, his face, after years of surgeries, is a surface of scars and improvised features made of bones and skin repurposed from elsewhere.

Crystal Martinez and Grettely Martinez April 28, What do you think the differences are between the Wonder book and movie? Here are the differences between the book and movie.

The difference's from the movie and the book are. One the movie cut out a lot of parts that happened in the book. Two it didn't mention Augusts herring aids and when they get a dog. In the movie it shoed when Jack will punched Julian like what happened in the book but the book didn't mention the fight that Jack will and Julian had. What I liked about the movie was that it still had the same story but it missed a few big details. Maybe this is just me but didn't really like the makeup they put on the actor because I imagined Auggie a whole different way.
Wonder is the story of a year-old boy named August Auggie Pullman, who was born with craniofacial differences. With its contemporary storyline and quiet focus on empathy and accepting differences, Wonder was a far cry from the dystopian blockbusters of the era. An author allowing others to adapt her story to screen takes a kind of courage and strength as well. Palacio counts herself lucky: she felt early on in the adaptation process that Wonder was in the hands of the right filmmakers. Chbosky, who wrote and directed the film adaptation of his own YA novel, vividly recalls the first time he read Wonder , in spring , shortly after his son was born. I knew the approach to take with it. He and Palacio walked around her Brooklyn neighborhood, getting to know one another and talking about Wonder.
