Description

“The Wonder” – starring Academy Award-nominee Florence Pugh – is the tale of a young Irish girl, Anna O'Donnell, whose Catholic family claim she has eaten nothing since her eleventh birthday … four months ago.


The Irish Midlands, 1862: A young girl stops eating but remains miraculously alive and well. English nurse Lib Wright (Florence Pugh) 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 harboring a saint 'surviving on manna from heaven' or are there more ominous motives at work?


“The Wonder” is a psychological thriller inspired by the 19th century phenomenon of the "fasting girls" and adapted from the acclaimed novel by Emma Donoghue (Room).
