'Wonder' a superhero movie: Julia Roberts

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Actor Julia Roberts called her new film "Wonder" a superhero movie.

The film also stars "Room" actor Jacob Tremblay, who plays Auggie Pullman, a young boy born with a rare genetic disorder named Treacher Collins, reported Contactmusic.

The 50-year-old actor plays the role of Tremblay's mother in the movie.

"To me, 'Wonder' is a superhero movie because Auggie is a superhero. It stopped me in my tracks. I read it with my kids, I loved it, they loved it. I hurled myself on the mercy of the producers and said, 'Please, let me be in this movie. I want to be the mom'," said Roberts.

"I couldn't put the book down. It is such a powerful way of telling people how they should behave to others. It reminded me to find moments in every day to choose the nice approach with other people," she added.

Directed by Stephen Chbosky, the movie also stars Own Wilson.
