Oprah Gives Young Girl $50K to Match 'A Wrinkle in Time' Fundraiser

2003. But Meg, the reluctant, bespectacled heroine of Madeleine L'Engle's classic "A Wrinkle in Time", has been with us, and on the shelves of middle-schoolers, since 1962. This is hardly a passive, by-the-numbers checklist of plot points, the fate of most YA books translated to the big screen.
But of course, that's never stopped Disney before - they'll do anything if they think it produces money - so here we are.
It was filmed in New Zealand with an A-list cast that included Oprah Winfrey.
Read what the critics are saying:"This Wrinkle in Time is undoubtedly flawed, wildly uneven and apt to tie itself in narrative knots in a quest to wow you with sheer Technicolor weirdness". That's ridiculous. Movies have been around for over 100 years, this is something that should have happened a long, long time ago. Since it has kept first place at the box office since its debut on February 16 and if it ends up topping "Wrinkle" to take the No. 1 spot again, it will become the first movie since "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" to finish at No. 1 for four straight weekends.
That, of course, has nothing to do with the actual quality of the film.
That commencement speech...no one knows this (you're the first to know this) came out of "A Wrinkle in Time". Who is - oh, she's, like, a billion years old and way more knowledgeable. Alex was right on the brink of some incredible scientific discovery - something that could potentially unlock all the secrets of the universe, or something like that - before he disappeared. And for good reason - Alex is actually alive. Meg clings to the belief that her father will return, but she can't help resenting his absence. When he answers the door to what amounts to a very unusual woman named Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon; Walk the Line) things suddenly seem to spiral out of control. But it's something that I wish Duvernay would have caught while they were filming... or at least in the editing room. The film sends the simultaneous messages that it's futile to coddle children but also that it's okay to feel the icky stuff that you feel, because even your weaknesses can be transformed to strengths.
If only there was a good script to accompany those bold chances. We're built on diversity, so the same goes in storytelling. Which towers over everyone else (she's Oprah) and has silver eyebrows and lipstick and a wardrobe resembling Ursula's of "The Little Mermaid". Essentially, the talent involved seems to make this a bit of a disappointment, though when considering the time of year, it's hardly a must miss. However, the movie shoots for the shallower end of that pool, which, given its rich source material, talented director, and stellar, diverse cast, makes it something of a letdown.
Still, the EIA's total domestic crude production figure hit a fresh weekly record at 10.369 million barrels a day for last week. As of 1633 GMT, front month West Texas Intermediate crude oil futures were lower by 0.76% at $62.10 a barrel on the ICE.

He said the statue was set up a year ago in Belonia, South Tripura's district headquarters, around 90km from Agartala. Why? Why BJP hates Lenin so much? He has even spoken to Home Minister Rajnath Singh regarding such deplorable acts.
But as a citizen of Russia and the head of Russian state I would ask: "What is such a world for, if there were no Russia?" The former KGB agent promised he hadn't tried to "turn" Melania Trump, "no, I stopped doing that a long time ago".
Bottom line: NASA's Parker Solar Probe - launching summer 2018 - will travel closer to the sun than any spacecraft yet. The rocket speed is so quick, at its nearest approach it will go at roughly 430,000 miles per hour .
And, lastly, the Nokia 8 Pro might make an earlier appearance with the Nokia 9 expected to launch in September (around IFA 2018?). HMD Global's big MWC 2018 event saw the arrival of 5 new phones, none of which were the long-awaited Nokia 9 .
