USA 2017. 113 mins.

In this adaptation of R. J. Palacio’s bestselling children’s novel of the same name, breakout star Jacob Tremblay (Room) delivers a masterful performance as Auggie Pullman, a young boy born with a facial deformity who tries to fit in at a new school.

Well versed in the subtleties of youth-based emotional drama, director Chbosky (The Perks Of Being A Wallflower) does a fine job empathising with Auggie’s dilemma, but ultimately it’s Tremblay’s film.
