Wrinkle in Time

I accidently caught a couple minutes of the ABC tv movie “A Wrinkle in Time“. I don’t know if it was just bad casting or the product of reading the book so often when I was younger, but my reaction was “Yikes, that isn’t Meg! No, that isn’t Calvin! No way is that Charles Wallace…Alfre Woodard as Mrs. Whatsit is cool.”

I really couldn’t watch it. I wonder if some books shouldn’t be adapted for screen. Then again, I would probably have had major doubts about Lord of the Rings if I hadn’t been previously convinced of the coolness of Peter Jackson, and those movies turned out ok.
