WONDER

Stephen Chbosky, USA, 2017, 114 min; PG - violence; bullying

This is a sincere, unusually thoughtful film in which two parents (Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson) bolster the confidence of their young son, Auggie (Room’s Jacob Tremblay), born with a facial deformity that even his active imagination can’t fully overcome. R. J. Palacio’s novel on which the film is based is beloved by young people; it’s even taught in schools as a fair-minded entryway into social interaction. Bullies don’t get served so much as given quiet moments to confront their own mistakes. --Time Out New York

WONDERSTRUCK

Director: Todd Haynes, USA, 2017, 116 min; rated G

A contemporary miracle: Here, finally, is a children's film for real children, a sincere and humane work. Its source material is Brian Selznick's 2011 illustrated novel, a captivating chronicle of two children, separated by decades but united by a family secret. In 1927, the born-deaf Rose (Millicent Simmonds) runs away from home to pursue a silent-movie star in New York. In 1977, the newly deaf orphan Ben (Oakes Fegley) runs away from home to find his birth father. –The Globe and Mail

THE PRINCESS BRIDE

Rob Reiner, USA, 1987, 98 min; PG

A delightfully postmodern fairy tale, this is a deft, intelligent mix of swashbuckling, romance, and comedy that takes an age-old damsel-in-distress story and makes it fresh.  “Children can see it as a bright, frothy adventure while adults will appreciate the subtlety and the sheer wit. The film mocks sword fantasies yet it also delights in them and is somehow able to trumpet the genre while simultaneously laughing at it. A rich, all-engrossing treat.” --BBCi

THE BREADWINNER

Nora Twomey, Ireland/Canada, 2017, 93 min; PG – violence Recommended for ages 11+

WINNER: BEST ANIMATED FEATURE! --Los Angeles Film Critics

A hand-drawn animated gem, based on the 2000 children’s novel by Canada’s Deborah Ellis. In the Taliban-ruled Kabul, women are second-class citizens, forbidden to walk around unescorted, let alone get a job. That’s a problem for a family when its story-telling patriarch is unjustly thrown in jail. Saving the day is 11-year-old Parvana, who cuts her hair and poses as a boy to provide for her mother and siblings. The feature is about loyalty, perseverance and the power of imagination. Jeff Danna and Mychael Danna provide the music. The picture sings and inspires. –The Globe and Mail
