Florence Pugh is English nurse “Mrs. Wright” who travels to Ireland to nurse a young girl who hasn’t eaten in quite a while. Well at least that is what she thinks. Upon arrival, she discovers from the board that she and a nun (Josie Walker) are not to nurse at all, but to sit and watch what happens to this young girl “Anna” (Kíla Lord Cassidy). Is this all a fraud or is it divine intervention that is enabling this young woman to survive un-nourished but for the odd sip of water. Enter Tom Burke’s rather sceptical journalist “Will”, a local who moved to London but who still has more than his fair share of demons. Soon he and the nurse begin to bond, despite their initial difference of opinions about the whole thing and she knuckles down to discover just what is going on. Pugh is really effective here, delivering a characterisation that is considered and sympathetic but by no means gullible. The story is a slow burn, and to be honest I found the conclusion a little implausible and unsatisfactory but she and the young Cassidy carry this really well. The dialogue is sparing with some beautiful scenery that helps well to depict an Ireland still in the grip of anti-English sentiment and religious superstitions.

“The Wonder takes time to transform its mysterious premise into a truly captivating narrative, but the displays of Florence Pugh and especially Kíla Lord Cassidy – one of the most impressive performances to come from a 13-year-old – bear the struggles in the least relevant moments.
As a character study, the film approaches the protagonists’ distinct grieving processes in a gradually more profound manner, with some surprises along the way. Filmmaker Sebastián Lelio makes the most of the atmospheric cinematography (Ari Wegner) and the contemplative score (Matthew Herbert) to elevate the slow pacing, but not always successfully.
For fans of period pieces, see it.”
Interesting narrative… and original
Firstly, the opening title credits were bold (not the font) but as soon as you hit play you will know what I mean… and I really liked the idea too…!
This, as you may have heard, is a slow-burn, but also a very interesting piece. It’s great to see new and inventive stories and plot points. You never really quite know what to think or where it will end up, and that was the best part of the writing, directing and editing… Nurse Wright arrives in small town Ireland hired to ‘watch’ an 11 year old girl for medical reasons… Together with a nun, they take 8 hour shifts, but as it is the year 1860, science and religious beliefs are quite seperate, but also closely linked.
The acting and slow development of the story keep you engaged and your brain ticking over the possible act III outcomes and payoffs… If you enjoy the period piece, drama, thriller type event then go into this one not knowing too much, if that’s possible.
Could end up on the best of the year lists for some I think… Especially on the originality scale.
Great narrative language.
2022 Netflix film directed by Sebastián Lelio, based on the 2016 novel of the same name by Emma Donoghue.
The production of the film, which received 12 nominations at the British Independent Film Awards on December 4, 2022, began on April 28, 2021.
Sebastián Lelio, a director who has proven himself with many works including Gloria Bell, is one of the directors who best tell women’s stories.
It is still a reality today that a disgusting incident that happened to a young girl is legitimized/masked by the villager using religion and even the victim considers himself guilty because of religion.
Even if you don’t read about historical events such as the Irish Potato Famine / Black 47, the film, which is more impressive with its texture, reflects the troubles of my period in the background.
The soundtrack of the film, which has a cinematographer like Ari Wegner who created his own fan base, was actually composed by an independent electronic musician, Matthew Herbert.
