A WRINKLE IN TIME is a US fantasy drama in which a girl and her brother search for their missing father in a different realm.

Threat

Children are threatened when they flee a vast storm, fall from great heights and meet sinister red-eyed villains along their journey. A force of evil flies through space and hits the Earth, causing explosions. Two young men, influenced by this evil, bully a homeless man.

There are moments of violence: a girl throws a ball into a bully's face; a girl is caught by the evil force and flung around.
