Our house rules is that kids have to read the book before you see the movie. Our kids have read the entire Wrinkle in Time series and highly recommend it for kids about their age. My 5th grader especially loved the time travel and the theme of good verses evil. Readers always wonder our thoughts on whether a movie is appropriate for kids. At the time of this post, we have not seen the movie, but I have heard it is family friendly. The movie carries a PG rating and it is always best to read reviews and see if it is the right fit for your family. A Wrinkle in Time runs for one hour and 49 minutes.
