Another post Black Panther must see for me is Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time, THE DISNEY MOVIE. I must confess that this project has my heart for two reasons. First is the FACT that this book got me to literally READ on the level of pure enjoyment as a elementary school child. It was my FIRST Science Fiction story ever, was relatable as the main character was MY age at the time. A book was assigned to me by a teacher, a black woman named Mrs. Garrett whom at the time was one of the many teachers (Black) at my school in Oakland, Cali whom I believe took her job for teaching young black children SERIOUSLY. She had a reading list to which we were given a choice of many books at 3rd/4th grade level and I out the blue choose this one just to get her off my back. After forcing the first few chapters, my attention begin to focus when the group encountered the tesseract. I read the entire book in a week and it inspired me to begin to WRITE my own Sci Fi story.
SECOND reason I must see this is that it is directed by "QUEEN SUGAR" director Ava DuVernay my film shero. This is her time showing her hand at a pure IMAGINARY direction which looks better than AMAZING YO! I am used to her work with the REAL and the TRUE which has (to me) all been cinematically OUTSTANDING. Now this YO! Is 2018 going to be the year I have to create a budget for MUST SEE movies? At least in the first three month is looks like..... Enjoy
Oh Yeah FYI: "A Wrinkle in Time", the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2013 and continues to thrive. It holds the ranking by many critics as one of the most frequently banned novels of all time.
