It's a gentle fantasy, seemingly pitched at younger children, that would rather take people by the hand than punch them on the shoulder, and that's a good thing; in fact, it's the wellspring of the movie's best qualities.

Reese Witherspoon as Mrs. Whatsit in Disney's "A Wrinkle in Time. Warning: Spoilers ahead for "A Wrinkle in Time. Disney's big-budget adaptation of the best-selling novel "A Wrinkle in Time" falters in many of the same ways the book does — but there was one major change made in the movie from the novel. The film's version of events strips away explicit mention of God or religion, instead trimming down the central conflict to one between "evil" and "light. Though the film adaptation has several critical flaws — namely pacing and an off-kilter wobble between too much exposition and then not enough — the removal of L'Engle's religious overtones leads to a key issue.
