The Wonder


The Wonder (2022, Neflix) is set in Ireland in 1862. An 11 year old girl,
Anna (Kila Lord Cassidy) hasn't eaten in 4 months and English nurse, Elizabeth Wright (Florence Pugh) is sent out to the rural village to observe the girl for 2 weeks.

Elizabeth and a nun, Sister Michael (Josie Walker), are to report their findings to a panel of men, including a medical doctor and priest.

Rather than have Anna die of starvation, Elizabeth teams up with journalist, William Byrne (Tom Burke) and the pair rescue the girl. The last we see of the 3, they are onboard a ship heading for Sydney.
