The Wonder

This film is directed by Academy award-winning director Sebastian Lelio and it is starring Academy award-winning actress Florence Pugh.

Adapted from the haunting and beguiling novel by Emma Donoghue, Florence Pugh is riveting as the woman sent to the Irish countryside in 1862 to determine if a young girl who claims she has not eaten for 4 months is a trickster or a saint.

It’s certified fresh with an 85% on Rotten Tomatoes and only in theatres for a limited time.
