Reviews:
3 stars out of 4 -- "[G]enuinely moving....Uniformly strong performances help ground the story." - 11/17/2017 RogerEbert.com


"The music, cheerful and unobtrusive and making liberal use one of the The White Stripes’ nicest song, 'We’re Going To Be Friends,' is nice." - 11/15/2017 A.V. Club


"WONDER is that rare thing, a family picture that moves and amuses while never overtly pandering." - 11/16/2017 New York Times


"[T]he film does maintain the book's effective structure, which involves telling its story from the perspective of multiple characters, and it’s got a narrative brimming with a variety of serious-seeming problems, all of which are capable of being resolved if people simply acted according to their better natures." - 11/15/2017 Los Angeles Times


"The good news is that writer-director Stephen Chbosky sidesteps the more blatantly cloying clichés inherent in the genre and finds a beating heart that mostly transcends the heavy dollops of Hollywood sugarcoating. A first-rate cast doesn't hurt either." - 11/17/2017 Rolling Stone


"Owen Wilson gives one of his most endearing performances in years as Auggie’s dad." - 11/16/2017 Chicago Sun-Times


3 stars out of 5 -- "Roberts is as watchable as ever, her ability to convey complex emotions with a brief look undiminished..." - 11/28/2017 Empire


"[Chbosky] has a gift for understanding young people and the nuances of their relationships. This is drawn out in the performances from the child actors..." - 12/03/2017 The Guardian


"WONDER brings an upbeat openheartedness to tough questions. Its lessons in compassion and self-acceptance are treacle-free...those lessons pack a universal punch." - 11/12/2017 Hollywood Reporter
