Sebastián Lelio’s THE WONDER is at once a radical departure from his Chilean cinematic roots, and of a piece with his previous explorations of women looking to break away from the social barriers that constrain them. Set in The Irish Midlands in 1862, the story follows a young girl who 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, who is said to have survived without food for months. What she discovers will soon change the course of her life forever.
