Based on the New York Times bestseller, Wonder tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of a year in the life of August “Auggie” Pullman (Jacob Tremblay).

Auggie was born with facial differences that have prevented him from going to a mainstream school. His supportive parents, mom Isabel (Julia Roberts) and dad Nate (Owen Wilson), decide to send him to Beecher Prep, so he’ll learn to socialise with other kids and become more comfortable in the outside world.

Auggie has an aptitude for science, a sly sense of humor, and an active imagination that helps him navigate uncomfortable situations. His older sister Via (Izabela Vidovic), lets her brother be the centre of the family’s attention at the expense of her own needs.

While Auggie’s family, his new classmates, and the community struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie's journey unites them all and proves you can't blend in when you were born to stand out.
