The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and the complete seven-audiobook set of the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis plus The Screwtape Letters and Screwtape Proposes a Toast.

CHRIS PINE: (As Mr. Murry) And our most recent calculations show us that these fields connect us to other dimensions, dimensions outside of the limitations of space and time. Imagine that - imagine. Rather than enduring the oppressive rules of time and space, we could wrinkle it - 91 billion light years traveled like that.
MONDELLO: Director Ava DuVernay has a light touch with these early scenes, though she gets seriously bogged down in special effects as the film goes on. In 1962 when \"A Wrinkle In Time\" was published, critics noted the Christian theology of author Madeleine L'Engle, comparing her to \"Narnia\" creator C.S. Lewis and wondered if the book's challenge to conformity could be read as a Cold War allegory about communism. No one's likely to do that this time. As presented in the movie, the film's themes of light and dark would be right at home in Oz - there's even a tornado - as would its sentiments about heart, brains and courage, all of which Meg has quite a lot of, as played fiercely by Storm Reid.
