Florence Pugh is ready to return to the spotlight for “The Wonder”, a Netflix project whose official trailer has been released.
After months of waiting, and after the excellent impressions received on his performance in Don’t Worry Darling, it is finally possible to take a look at what will be the next interpretation of Florence Pugh. A few hours ago, in fact, an official trailer was released for The Wonderan adaptation from the pen of Emma Donoghue, which sees the actress return to the drama genre, in a film that seems to be divided between mystical and thriller, not too far from one of its best performances: Midsommar.
For the title of Sebastián Lelio, Florence Pugh plays Lib Wright, an English nurse determined to solve what seems an impossible case: in a small town, in fact, a girl named Anna O’Donnell manages to stay alive despite not eating for almost four months, the period from which his eleventh birthday dates back. But not only that: apparently, the girl would be feeding on manna from heaven.
Deadline, on the other hand, confirmed that in addition to Florence Pugh, the cast of The Wonder predicts: Tom Burke, David Wilmot, Niamh Algar, Ciarán Hinds, Elaine Cassidy, Toby Jones, Dermot Crowley and Brían F. O’Byrne. The screenplay, on the other hand, was written by several hands, therefore starting from the text by Donoghue, who participated in the first draft of the screenplay, and then by Lelio himself and Alice Birch (Normal People).
So here is the official trailer of the film:
Sebastián Lelio’s last experience, before The Wonder, dates back to Gloria Bell, a 2018 comedy that sees two greats of American cinema as the first protagonists: Julianne Moore and John Turturro. The previous year, however, he had directed in Disobedience an all-female duo made up of two equally important faces of contemporary cinema, namely Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness).
