the wonder

11 – 17 November, 2022

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 11-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? A psychological thriller inspired by the 19th century phenomenon of the ‘fasting girls’ and adapted from the acclaimed novel by Emma Donoghue (Room).

A film about the danger of believing without questioning that turns us into full-throated believers in whatever Lelio and Pugh can do. ★★★★
