Be kind, for everyone is fighting a hard battle. And if you really want to see what people are, all you have to do is ….look. So, here comes Netflix and director Stephen Chbosky with another movie WONDER. The movie is based on the book Wonder by R.J.Palacio. The movie WONDER revolves around the problem faced by a child Auggie Pullman born with facial deformities and he with his family deals with the marginalization faced by him.
We all have scars and we all are perfect with some imperfections. I think this is the thing which makes us different from others. Nothing is perfect. We can’t change the way things are but we can change the way we look into them. This is the lesson which this Netflix movie WONDER gives us. Auggie who has an inferiority complex because of his facial differences. He feels sad when people consider him as an unconsecrated. Every dark cloud has a silver lining. Beside all these human treating problems he ends up having best buddies for the life. Everything takes time. Even you took nine months in your mother womb to become a child from the egg,
The main thing which I love about the movie is, it teaches us the importance of family and friends (a true one) in our life. At the end of the edge, it is the family who accepts our flaws and motivates us to live the next day. It is Auggie’s mother who wants her son to face the world and she insists Auggie’s father (surely her husband) to send Auggie to middle school and yes, her decision works out and turned Auggie into a very confident child with no fear to face the world. Without the support of his family, Auggie will not be able to make it.
WONDER also peeps into the ‘change’ which is the law of nature. Today we are important to someone and the next day we are nothing. And we have to accept this fact that people come and people go but life goes on. We will find our connections somewhere in the world and sometimes we will get back our old one.
We should not be self-centred and not think that we are the only one who is having a problem. It’s not about ourself always. I, you and maybe the person sitting next to is facing any kind of problem. We can’t do anything with other’s problem, what we can do is be nice and treat them the way they wanted themselves to be treated. Greatness lies not in strength it lies in the qualities what we are having in our heart. And the heart with kindness never gets disappointed by the world.
In a nutshell, the movie is heart touching dealing with all human nature problems, highlighting the value of relations and teach us how to accept the flaws and live life.
Just accept the world as it is and if you don’t like it then change your lens. This is one of the best ways to live life, maybe to enjoy life.
