Based on the New York Times bestseller by RJ Palacio, Wonder is a story about a young boy learning his way into the world as his parents lend him a little courage. Ten-year-old August, Auggie Pullman was born with a rare genetic abnormality that required him to undergo as many as 30 surgeries and medical treatments since his early days. His sole courage is his mother played by Julia Roberts, who gave up working on her PhD to care for him. After being homeschooled for years, Auggie’s real challenge begins when he is forced to step back into the world. He is enlisted into the fifth grade at a private school where he befriends a boy named Jack. The two form a strong bond and soon stand up to the bullies in their class.
