Excellent performances by the cast all around. Jacob Tremblay, Julia Roberts, and Izabela Vidivic all scored 9+ out of 10, while Noah Jupe scored 8.5.
Favorite scenes were when Auggie and Jack Will were confronted by some bullies at camp and were defended by their former bullies, and Auggie’s overwhelmed by new friends he’s made. Some of the side stories, including Miranda’s and Via’s friendship and their own journeys were very insightful, as was the reasoning for Julian’s attitude towards Auggie, involving Julian’s parents.
