Synopsis

Auggie Pullman has been born with facial differences that have so far prevented him from attending a mainstream school. Embarrassed, the passionate young scientist spends most of his time with an astronaut’s helmet on his head. As he starts attending school for the first time, Auggie tries to fit in and make everyone realise that he is no different to anybody else. Over the course of a remarkable year, he and his peers learn about compassion, empathy and understanding, with Auggie becoming an unlikely hero. Adapted from the bestselling novel, this is a charming, inspiring family film that deals with its subject matter sensitively and intelligently. Telling its story from multiple points of view, it demonstrates the importance of learning to see the world through other people’s eyes and to always strive to choose kindness.
