The psychological thriller ‘The Wonder’ starring Florence Pugh released a poster, announcing that it will be released on November 2 in a small area in Northern America and on Netflix on November 16.
Directed by Sebastián Lelio, The Wonder comes to Netflix on November 16, 2022.
The film is a psychological thriller inspired by the 19th century phenomenon of the “fasting girls” and adapted from the acclaimed novel by Emma Donoghue (writer of Room).
“The Irish Midlands, 1862 – a young girl stops eating but remains miraculously alive and well. English nurse Lib Wright is brought to a tiny village to observe eleven-year old Anna O’Donnell. Tourists and pilgrims mass to witness the girl who is said to have survived without food for months.
“Is the village harbouring a saint ‘surviving on manna from heaven’ or are there more ominous motives at work?”
The cast also includes Tom Burke, Niamh Algar, Elaine Cassidy, Kíla Lord Cassidy, Toby Jones, Ciarán Hinds, Dermot Crowley, Brían F. O’Byrne, and David Wilmot.
Emma Donoghue, Sebastián Lelio, and Alice Birch wrote the script.
