Silver Linings Playback 9 – A Wrinkle in Time


Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre are continuing their quest to watch maligned movies in hopes of finding a silver lining.

For the month of June, they are watching blockbuster films that were meant to be the start of franchises … but weren’t.

To close out the month, they are examining Ava DuVernay’s 2018 adaptation of Madeleine L’Engl’s novel A Wrinkle in Time. Despite being a Disney film with a big name supporting cast, it lost money at the box office. Joel and Andy try to figure out why it wasn’t a bigger success.

Theme Song: “Bankin’” by Bronson Scott
