Wonder

When I was in the belly of my mother, nobody had any idea that I was going to be born with this look, “says, in first person, the 10-year-old protagonist of Wonder, in the first lines of the novel Dumbo in which is based: Wonder, the lesson of August, by RJ Palacio. The phrase, and the expression “this looks”, could serve as paradigms for the tone -desmitifier, alleviating, almost sarcastic- of one of those funambulist films, very difficult to solve, on difficult subjects and environments. Because “this looks” is that of a child born with Treacher-Collins syndrome, a congenital craniofacial malformation, which has been operated on 27 occasions, and that after being educated at home by his mother for years and going out on the street Continually wearing an astronaut helmet, he tackles his first experience in a school with children his age.

In the line of what was the excellent Mask (Peter Bogdanovich, 1985), that about a similar boy in adolescent age, Wonder approaches the drama from the greatness of the love of a family and from the inevitable tripping of a society that does not seem ready to face certain aspects of life -from the physical to the moral-. Aided by some formidable performances, with Julia Roberts and a magnificent group of children performers led by Jacob Tremblay, the kid from La habitación, Stephen Chbosky, director of the event, guides the story with the firm hand of the one who is not afraid of the drama but not the comedy, and, above all, the one who knows that falling into Goosebumps Haunted Halloween sentimentality and the tear gas would be a low blow to the essence of its history.
