From Everybody:

I've been looking forward to seeing this movie ever since I first heard that it was being made. I absolutely love the book and hoped the movie could do it justice. Fortunately it could, and while it didn't blow me away the way the book did, I think that's more due to the fact that the movie couldn't offer anything more than what the book had already given. It was EXTREMELY true to the book - incredibly well made and with a terrific cast. The look on Julia Robert's face the first time Auggie has a friend home? I almost cried. She's such a good actor!

Ok so it's predictable and the ending is a little OTT, but who doesn't like a scrappy underdog overcoming prejudice in a heartwarming tale of friendship and courage?
I liked the split point of view, so that the film isn't entirely about Auggie and his struggles, and the cast give it their all, even if the writers sometimes resort to cliche and have the kids speak in idealised screenwriter dialogue rather than in any way naturally.

sweet and moving story

A film that perfectly captures the struggles of growing up, but also the limitless possibility, and the struggles that everyone faces. If you're not crying by the end, you just weren't paying attention.
