[Jason] Tremblay was wonderful in Room and he is again here, [Julia] Roberts is suitably fierce, [Owen] Wilson keeps it low key.

With verisimilitude, outstanding acting from its central and supporting cast, and a surprisingly gritty undertone beneath the melodrama and sentient multifaceted perspectives, Wonder succeeds in creating an honest portrayal of an uncommon life situation.

I can understand where there is value in showing this film to younger children because the message, albeit sanitized, will resonate.

You would have to be an utter, utter bastard to give Wonder a bad review.

It's Roberts who dazzles. Putting her in scenes with a child who picks up on the slightest flicker of insincerity is the kind of challenge she was born for -- it's acting crack.

It is unashamedly sentimental, old-fashioned and bursting to the seams with Important Life Lessons. But it's very well put-together, indeed; a smart, effective and, occasionally, funny film that surprises at every turn.

Wonder is a tearjerker but it is well crafted, intelligent and sincere. Make sure you take a hankie.

It sometimes over-plays its hand but, anchored by a terrific Jacob Tremblay, Wonder is a warm persuasive argument for tolerance.

It's a little mawkish, but Chbosky, a YA institution himself, has a gift for understanding young people and the nuances of their relationships.

If in the end the film feels a little too tidy, a little too contrived in the way the plot elements are neatly sewn together, this is perhaps a small price to pay for a film with its heart firmly in the right place.

Nonetheless, Hollywood rules in the end and it's very much a soft-focus view of a family under stress.

Director Stephen Chbosky, who previously adapted The Perks of Being a Wallflower (his own novel) for the screen has fashioned a irresistibly warm, unabashedly humanist family picture.

Stephen Chbosky's Wonder is sharply enough written and performed to overcome its own very schmaltzy premise.
