Ryan Coogler praises 'big sister' Ava DuVernay

A "Wrinkle in Time" is so wrinkled that I couldn't straighten it out in my mind.

Ryan Coogler, director of the box office phenomenon Black Panther, penned a supportive tribute to Ava DuVernay and her new film, A Wrinkle in Time.

"I flipped out", says Reid, now 14 and in the ninth grade. This will make you feel relieved by reestablishing your positivism.

In the movie, a young girl named Meg gets sent to space to look for her father by three peculiar beings.

The thing is, kids movies don't have to make as much sense as films intended for adults. And the strength she had to have to do that, from the moment I read that book I kept it with me and my daughter was reading it when I started writing this and we had endless conversations about this.

"I wanted Mrs. of all different shapes, sizes, culture, races", remarked DuVernay. "She knows my name!"

"She's a woman of color with a show with her name on it". Four years pass, and Meg has become a lonely, defiantly independent adolescent who's still heartbroken over the absence of her dad. Mindy Kaling appeared on The Late Show Thursday to promote Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle in Time. The kooky, yet sassy Mrs. Whatsit is played by Reese Witherspoon.

Reese Witherspoon as Mrs. Whatsit walks the meadows of the utopian planet Uriel in A Wrinkle In Time.

The older stars deliver what they asked with Pine and Mbatha-Raw being warm presences and the three Mrs. doing what they can. In fact, this is the first Disney film I have ever found boring.

"I think when you're a stand-up comic, you have a... not a chip on your shoulder, but that's where you come from and to be involved in such a big, big movie like this, it makes me..."

Zach Galifianakis is a disaster as a character named the Happy Medium, and when the devilish Red (Michael Pena) appears, he seems an bad lot like King's "It" villain Pennywise, even though L'Engle's book precedes King's. Galifianakis got choked up when he spoke about working with DuVernay and his castmates. Love is the real wrinkle in the time/space continuum. "When I first met Ava, there was something about her that made me..." I fell in love with this idea that I didn't completely understand, and I fell in love with the emotion of it.

His remarks touched on the importance of boys and young men seeing alternate images of masculinity. Black Panther and A Wrinkle in Time are both sending shockwaves throughout the entertainment industry. In 2015, Selma, the drama about the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture. But like so many indie directors past, DuVernay stumbles her leap into blockbuster filmmaking.

What we're left with is something neither here nor there: a film too weird to please audiences looking for down-the-middle family entertainment but not weird enough to please people looking for something weird. "Let me try to help you out here".

And, most importantly, Meg is clearly the hero of the movie. Although it's targeted for young children, it's also an enjoyable movie for the whole family.

The performances of the cast are all mostly solid, particularly those of Reid, McCabe, Pine, and Winfrey.
