Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Jacob Tremblay
Director: Stephen Chbosky
Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie Pullman becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. 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 and prove you can't blend in when you were born to stand out.
The main character, Auggie, is terrified of showing his flaws to others. But when he opened himself up to others, he found that he was lovable after all… just as he was. Like Auggie, many of us live behind masks to hide things that we are ashamed about ourselves, whether it be our looks, our mistakes, our fears, etc. Through Christ, we can safely put our masks down and live in freedom as who He created us to be. We are valuable, lovable, precious and wanted, even though we aren’t perfect. God knew exactly what he was doing when He made us and He has an extraordinary calling for our lives.
