First Look Photo at Florence Pugh in Netflix Thriller THE WONDER

Netflix has released a first-look photo of Florence Pugh (Little Women, Black Widow) in the upcoming thriller The Wonder. The film just started production in Ireland and is being directed by Chilean director Sebastián Lelio.

The film is an adaptation of the acclaimed novel by Emma Donoghue and is set in the Irish Midlands in 1862. “A psychological thriller inspired by the 19th century-phenomenon of the ‘fasting girls,’ it follows 11-year-old Anna O’Donnell, who stops eating but remains miraculously alive and well, and an English nurse Lib Wright (Pugh), who is brought to her tiny village to observe. Tourists and pilgrims amass to witness the girl who is said to have survived without food for months.”

The cast also includes Tom Burke (Mank), Niamh Algar (Censor), Elaine Cassidy (Disco Pigs), Kíla Lord Cassidy (The Doorman), Toby Jones (First Cow), Dermot Crowley (The Death of Stalin), Brían F. O’Byrne (Little Boy Blue), and Ciaran Hinds (The Terror). The screenplay is by Donoghue, Lelio, and Alice Birch (Normal People).
