Andre Grant was able to screen Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time film and offer his opinion on the eve of its release to theaters.
“The creative adult is the child who survived,” said Ursula K. Leguin. Or was it someone else? Whoever said it, the moments they were talking about surviving are adolescence. That time of your life is filled with innumerable terrors as you transition from childhood to young adulthood, but those terrors are made somewhat easier by things you love; whatever you love. They should also be made easier by Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time,” which adoringly tries to tell the 12-year-old inside all of us that it’s okay to be yourself; it’s okay to delve inside yourself; and it’s okay to heal.
