Wonder (2017)

This is a moving, touching, funny film about a 10 year-old boy with a congenital facial deformity.  Although the name of his disorder is not given in the film, it is most likely Treacher-Collins syndrome.  It could be about Apert syndrome or any child with facial deformities.The story is told with great sensitivity; you'll laugh and tear up alternately.  It that rare movie that will appeal to all ages.

See NY Times Review. See Trailer.

Rook also discussed in NY Times, November 27, 2019.

There is a book by the same title that I have not read yet: Wonder by RJ Palacio.
