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. ‘Wonder’ will be preceded by a 15 minute Welsh language short film (with English subtitles), ‘Elen’. It follows a ten year-old girl who has epilepsy and an imagination which both enchants and haunts her, as she makes a new friend at school. Ganwyd Auggie Pullman â diffygion i’w wyneb sydd wedi ei atal rhag mynychu Ysgol prif ffrwd. O ganlyniad, mae’r gwyddonydd ifanc brwd yn treulio rhan fwyaf o’i amser yn gwisgo helmed gofodwr ar ei ben. Wrth ddechrau’n yr ysgol, mae Auggie yn ceisio ymgartrefu drwy wneud i bobl feddwl nad yw e’n wahanol i bawb arall. Dros gyfnod o flwyddyn, mae ei gyfeillion ac ef yn dysgu am dosturi, empathi a chyfeillgarwch, ag Auggie yn dod yn arwr. Mae’r ffilm, sy’n addasiad o’r nofel lwyddiannus, yn hyfryd ac yn ysbridoledig ac yn addas i’r teulu gyfan. Mae’n ymdrin â'r pwnc yn sensitif ac yn ddeallus. Mae adrodd y stori o nifer o safbwynitiau gwahanol yn adlewyrchu pwysigrwydd dysgu gweld y byd drwy lygaid phobl eraill a phwysigrwydd caredigrwydd. Mi fyddwn yn dangos y ffilm fer cyfrwng Cymraeg (hyd at 15 munud a gydag is-deitlau Saesneg) 'Elen' yn cael ei dangos wedi’r dangosiad o Wonder. Dyma ffilm sy’n dilyn hanes merch ddeng mlwydd oed sydd ag epilepsi ond sydd hefyd â dychymyg fyrlumus ac sy’n gallu ei hatal i wneud ffrindiau newydd yn yr ysgol.
