Ava DuVernay, who established herself in Hollywood as one of the hottest documentary directors of the past decade, is now directing A Wrinkle in Time, the film adaptation of the beloved children’s novel. Oprah Winfrey stars as Mrs. Which, and she told us she was incredibly impressed with DuVernay’s vision and attention to detail. (Click on the media bar below to hear Oprah Winfrey)
A Wrinkle in Time, which also stars Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon, and Mindy Kaling, opens in theaters this Friday.
For many schoolkids, the classic 1963 novel A Wrinkle In Time was required reading, and for good reason. The sci-fi story, about a young girl who travels across the universe to rescue her father, was fun, imaginative, and thought-provoking. Now it’s being reimagined as a movie by acclaimed director Ava DuVernay, with an all-star cast that includes Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling and Oprah Winfrey. We talked to the three actresses, who each expressed their love and passion for the film.
A Wrinkle In Time will open in theaters on March 9, 2018.
