I finally finished watching Stranger Things with my family and now I feel like I’m caught up culturally again, even if the Post put Millie Bobby Brown on the out list this year. (Not in my house, Post!)

Storm Reid is on the “in” list, which I’ll totally buy. I’m still conflicted about Wrinkle in Time, which I have read more times than I can count, as a movie. But it *looks* like they’ve done it a good job. And Camazotz is the way I’ve always pictured it.

My main casting issue is with the three Mrs. W’s. I hope they’ll be brilliant, but the book came out in 1962, so it seems to me that Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which should be a good two decades OLDER than the book, right? And looking like tramps? (Though that’s not an especially presidential look.)  The trailers don’t show them in the beginning so I will withhold judgment until I either give in and decide to see it or a reliable friend gives me a full report.
