Improv comedian CJ Le Mon, of the Improv Bandits joins Emma to discuss A Wrinkle in Time, the new fantasy family movie, filmed in New Zealand.

The film based on the 1962 book by Madeleine L’Engle  brings to life the story of Meg Murry, a troubled teen who travels across dimensions to rescue her scientist father (Chris Pine). Meg is guided by a trio of mysterious beings called “the Mrs” played by Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and  Mindy Kaling.

Although the Screen Sirens and other critics have been less enthusiastic about A Wrinkle in Time, Oprah Winfrey told Maori TV’s Native Affairs she enjoyed filming the movie in New Zealand.

“Usually I can’t wait to get home because I love my own backyard so much.  New Zealand fills me up so deeply that I don’t have the usual longing to get home,”  she told Maori TV’s Aroha Awarau.
