I watched the TV movie of A Wrinkle In Time on Monday. It’s one of the first books I read that I still have (and you can tell, my copies of the series are pretty banged up), and probably responsible, along with “Star Wars”, for my early love of speculative fiction.
The movie was surpisingly good – the children cast, especially David Dorfman as Charles Wallace, did a great job. Jill and I recently watched the BBC version of “Chronicles Of Narnia”, and I had a hard time with both the children cast and the horrible special effects. The effects in “AWIT” were decent (I didn’t like the winged centaurs, but they weren’t on screen long.
It’ll likely be on DVD this fall – I’ll pick it up.
