Wonder – White Bird, film directed by Marc Forster, tells the story of Julian (Bryce Gheisar), a somewhat arrogant child, who at school has the reputation of being a bully, so much so that he targets anyone he sees as "different" . Because of this character, the boy is also suspended from school. The summer after this experience, Julian spends his holidays in Paris with his grandmother (Helen Mirren), who during a hot afternoon tells him a story: how as a girl she managed to escape the Nazis during the Second World War. The grandmother was a young Jewish woman, who lived in France occupied by Hitler's troops. Helping her save herself was a peer of hers, a young man named Julian, just like her nephew, who, despite suffering from deformities in his legs, managed to perform a gesture that made him a true hero.

From graphic novel to film. but excessive fidelity weakens the message and makes good intentions fade.

1942. Sara is fifteen years old and lives in Alsace, that is, in unoccupied France. However, the German presence gradually becomes stronger and the raids begin. She will be saved by the family of Julien, a boy suffering from polio, whom she previously kept at a distance. A strong friendship is born between the two which will develop over the long period in which they will have to remain hidden.continue on MyMovies
