The plot of the film “The Wonder”
The film’s background sets in the 19th Century Irish Midlands. The genre of the film is Mystery-thriller. Sometimes we are confused between science and a miracle. This film focuses on the theme of that.
The female lead of the film is Lib Wright who is working as a nurse. She was asked to go to a small village to observe a girl.In that village an eleven-year-old girl named Anna who is surviving without eating for four months. So the head of the village hires Lib Wright to get answers regarding the matter. Is it possible to live without the intake of any foods for four months? The answer is no.
So pilgrims and tourists come to visit the girl as some miracle. Lib’s job is to observe the girl and how she is surviving without eating anything.In the meantime, a reporter named Willaim Bryne tries to uncover the secrets of the incident.
As a nurse, Lib Wright believes in Science. But the family of Anna strongly believes in Catholic Faith. Lib got suspicious when she is changing her shift with Sister Michael. She thinks that Anna was secretly fed by someone. Because, how can Anna survive without eating especially without losing her energy?Anna tells Lib that she gets energy from her deceased brother Manna, who is now in heaven. So Lib Wright and William Bryne join hands to reveal the truth of Anna’s fasting.
William suspects that Anna is used as a tool for religious benefits and also suspects that Anna is being brainwashed to behave like this. When Lib asks any queries on Anna she was ordered only to observe Anna, which means she is not allowed to dig into that matter.
Is “The Wonder” a true story?
In an interview, Emma Donoghue says that she was inspired by the real-life stories of the girls who are fasting, and nurses are hired to observe them by the Times Newspaper. She calls this event an unholy alliance of the medical establishment and the media establishment. Emma voice her feelings through Lib Wright in the scenes consisting of Anna and William.
Florence Pugh establishes beautiful acting as Lib Wright. No one can do this role as perfectly as Florence. We have to wait for two more days to watch the wonder done by Florence pugh.
