Imagery is Everything in ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ (March 14)

African Americans in film are having the best year ever! We are barely over 70 days into 2018 and “Black Panther” tops the box office for the fourth week in a row ($41.1 million), and right behind it this past weekend is another Disney movie, “A Wrinkle in Time” ($33.3 million).

Directed by a Black woman, Ava Duvernay, “A Wrinkle in Time” is based on a 1962 novel about a sibling duo who searches through space and time for their missing father. The film stars Oprah Winfrey, Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and newcomer Storm Reid.

Although Oprah did sprinkle massive amounts of the greatness in this film, it was 14-year-old Reid who stole the show. Reid, who had a small role in “12 Years a Slave,” plays main character and big sister, Meg Murray. She is amazing, filling really big shoes with a small amount of effort. Her role is very important for little Black girls. It changes the imagery of what it means to be a young Black student.
