Ayala Malls Cinemas Exclusively Brings Inspirational Film “WHITE BIRD: A WONDER STORY” Ahead of U.S. Release

Ayala Malls Cinemas continues to bring world-class, critically acclaimed films for movie enthusiasts with "White Bird: A Wonder Story". The film is a follow-up to 2017’s "Wonder", the beloved coming-of-age drama based on R.J. Palacio’s bestseller novel of the same name. Directed by Marc Forster, "White Bird" opens exclusively in Ayala Malls Cinemas on March 20, months ahead of the film’s U.S. release in October 2024. 

"White Bird: A Wonder Story" is based on the critically acclaimed, beloved graphic novel of the same name by R.J. Palacio, the author of "Wonder". In "White Bird", kindness even has the power to save lives, as Julian Albans (Bryce Gheisar, reprising his role from the previous film), the bully who left Beecher Prep, is visited by his Grandmère (Academy Award winner Helen Mirren) from Paris and is transformed by her remarkable story of compassion and courage. As a girl in Nazi-occupied France during WWII, the young Grandmère goes into hiding with the help of a schoolmate, a young man who risks everything to give her the chance to survive. Together, they find beauty and love in the secret world of their own creation.

"White Bird: A Wonder Story" was screened at the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival in July 2023, and premiered in Italy January this year. Writes Variety in their review: “Palacio’s book is fairly on-the-nose in messaging, symbolism and imagery. Forster brings a more refined visual sensibility that is inviting without being over-glamorized, opening up a potentially claustrophobic tale in ways that enhance its impact. Shot in the Czech Republic, the rural environs have a slight storybook quality in Matthias Konigswieser’s very attractive widescreen cinematography.”

Watch "White Bird: A Wonder Story" starting March 20, 2024 only at Ayala Malls Cinemas. Keep updated and all of the latest cinema experiences from Ayala Malls Cinemas by following the official Ayala Malls Cinemas FB and IG pages.
