You can expect a few tears to be shed in theaters when Wonder opens this Friday. Based on the bestselling book, it tells the story of a young boy with facial deformities who goes to public school for the first time and tries to fit in. Jacob Tremblay, who delivered an amazing performance in 2015’s Room, plays August Pullman in a way that will — pardon the cliché — make you laugh, make you cry, and ultimately make you cheer. We talked with Tremblay and his on-screen mother, Oscar-winner Julia Roberts, and asked if they were able to hold back the tears when they saw the finished film.
Wonder is now playing in theaters.
