A Wrinkle in Time

New this month Question: Why didn't Mrs Whatsit turn into a winged centaur as she did in the book? What made them alter the magic creature into a living leaf?

New this month Question: Why don't we see Calvin stand up to his abusive father and why does he abuse him?

Cody Fairless-Lee

New this month Answer: Because the movie isn't about Calvin, but Meg and her family. Seeing Calvin stand up to his father would be going off on a tangent. As for the reason for the abuse, who can say? Some people are just jerks.

New this month Question: When Meg returns with her father, did she still have to write apology letters to Principal Jenkins and Veronica?

Cody Fairless-Lee

New this month Answer: With Meg's father returning after four years, her mother probably had other things on her mind than Meg's punishment. But with all Meg had learned about kindness and love, she might have decided to write the letters anyway.

New this month Question: Are Meg and Veronica friends at the end of the movie?

Cody Fairless-Lee

New this month Answer: No, but with Meg understanding Veronica's self-image issues and Veronica seeing that popular boy Calvin obviously thought highly of Meg, maybe they won't be so antagonistic to each other.

Question: How is it that Meg and Charles' mother has not noticed that her children were gone?

Cody Fairless-Lee

New this month Answer: Just like in the book, the children travelled in time as well as space. From the mother's perspective, they were only gone for a short while.

Question: I get that Meg is in trouble for hitting Veronica in the face with a basketball, but why isn't Veronica in trouble for leaving a mean note on Meg's locker and calling her brother crazy?

Cody Fairless-Lee

New this month Answer: Could be a matter of severity. Hitting someone in the face with a basketball could result in someone being permanently injured or disfigured, possibly even blinded. Leaving mean notes and calling someone crazy is far less serious and might not warrant being punished other than a mild reprimand.
