Haunted by her past, a nurse travels from England to a remote Irish village in 1862 to investigate a young girl’s supposedly miraculous fast.
The Wonder (2022) is a drama film directed by Sebastián Lelio and starring Florence Pugh, Morgan Saylor, and Niamh Algar. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Emma Donoghue.
The film is set in Ireland in 1862. Anna O’Donnell, an 11-year-old girl, is said to have survived for months without eating. A young nurse, Lib Wright, is sent to observe Anna and determine if she is truly a miracle.
As Lib gets to know Anna, she begins to question whether Anna is really a miracle. She also begins to question her own beliefs about science and religion. The film explores themes of faith, science, and the power of the human spirit.
The Wonder is a well-made and thought-provoking film. The performances are excellent, with Pugh giving a particularly strong performance as Lib. The film is beautifully shot and the atmosphere is both eerie and suspenseful.
I would recommend The Wonder to fans of period dramas, psychological thrillers, and films about faith and science. It is also a good film for fans of Florence Pugh.
Here are some specific people who I would recommend The Wonder to:
- Fans of period dramas. The Wonder is a beautifully shot film that captures the atmosphere of 19th century Ireland.
