Wonder released last year became a blockbuster. The movie raised more than $300 million worldwide and Oscar winner Julia Roberts is one of the main actresses. The story (based on the best-selling novel of the same title by R.J. Palacio) is about August Pullman, a young boy played by the amazing Canadian actor Jacob Tremblay. Pullman was raised in upper Manhattan, New York. He has a rare medical facial disease called Treacher Collins syndrome.
The film presents many tribulations that Pullman has to go through ,mainly in his private school. To me, the main message of this movie is the importance of inner beauty. I remember a cute man that I used to see a few times for cocktails. Often, I had interesting discussions with him. However, my opinion of him changed drastically when he told me he does not believe that the Holocaust ever occurred. I was appalled by his anti-Semitic arguments and suddenly he appeared ugly to me. I could not see his outer beauty anymore.



Even though Nick (Henry Golding) and Rachel (Constance Wu) have been dating for a few years, they don't know much about each other's background. That's because they live in New York City where he's never bothered to reveal that he's from one the wealthiest families in Singapore, and she's never talked about her humble roots, having been raised by a single-mom immigrant (Kheng Hua Tan) to the U.S. from China.

The difference in social status never affected their relationship, since Nick's so unassuming, and ambitious Rachel beat the odds by getting a great education en route to becoming an economics professor at NYU. In fact, they've gotten along so well that he's seriously considering proposing. He's even picked out a diamond ring.
