Wonder (2017) —– Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman.

As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to discover their compassion and acceptance, Auggie’s extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.
