Netflix has released the official trailer for Sebastián Lelio’s new psychological drama The Wonder ahead of its Headline Gala premiere at London Film Festival – following its acclaimed debuts at Telluride Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival and San Sebastian Film Festival

1862,13 years after the Great Famine. An English Nightingale Nurse Lib Wright (Florence Pugh) is called to the Irish Midlands by a devout community to conduct a 15-day examination over one of their own. Anna O’Donnell (Kíla Lord Cassidy) is an 11-year-old girl who claims not to have eaten for four months, surviving miraculously on “manna from heaven”. As Anna’s health rapidly deteriorates, Lib is determined to unearth the truth, challenging the faith of a community that would prefer to stay believing.

Adapted from the bestselling novel by Emma Donoghue (ROOM), and inspired by true stories of the “Fasting Girls” phenomenon, THE WONDER stars Florence Pugh, Tom Burke, Kila Lord Cassidy, Elaine Cassidy, Niamh Algar, Toby Jones and Ciarán Hinds. The screenplay is co-written by Lelio and Donoghue along with Alice Birch.
