Hero’s Journey

There is a countless amount of books and movies that follow the same outline. This outline goes in a specific storyline. The first thing that happens is they show you the main character. The main character will be at their most comfortable time in the story. The next thing that happens is the character will face some challenges. One challenge will be the hardest one yet. The last thing that happens is a reward of some sort.

The movie that I am writing about is called Wonder. Wonder is a movie and a book that is about Auggie. Auggie is a 10-year-old boy who loves Xbox, his dog, Daisy, and he really loves Star Wars. Auggie was born with a rare facial condition called Treacher Collins syndrome. In the start of the movie Auggie is at home and he is homeschooled. He has been homeschooled his whole life. In the story he is going to a public school and he and his family is scared for him.

Auggie is very nervous to go to the public school. He wanted to wear his astronaut helmet so that nobody could see his face. His parents would not let him so he had to wear nothing. This was a big challenge for him because he did not want to get bullied. For the first few months of going to school, he had a horrible time. He had to deal with people making comments such as “Did your face get burnt in a fire?”

The reward at the end of the movie was that Auggie finally made lots of friends. Everybody thought that he was so cool and the whole school wanted to be his friend. At the end of the movie, August is awarded the ‘Henry Ward Beecher Medal’ for being ‘notable or exemplary in certain areas throughout the school year’ He got this because he was very smart and despite people making fun of him he still tried his best to have a good time and do well on his work.

The reason that this movie gets the name wonder is because his mom is so proud of him and she called Auggie a wonder. This is definitely one of my favourite movies and it shows that some of the best movies and books use this same outline. At first, Auggie is comfortable, then faces some challenges, then gets a reward.
