‘The Wonder’ to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival
Florence Pugh‘s upcoming thriller The Wonder will have it’s world premiere at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival on September 13. Plus, there will be two additional screening for the film on September 14-15.
Lib Wright (Florence Pugh), a veteran of Florence Nightingale’s Crimean campaign, arrives in the Irish Midlands hired for an unusual task: to observe an 11-year-old girl named Anna O’Donnell (Kíla Lord Cassidy), who has reportedly not eaten a morsel for four months. As religious tourists descend on the village, the town council wants answers and so hires Lib, a medical professional, along with a nun, to watch the child and determine the root cause of the phenomenon. Disturbed by the pious fervour hampering her investigation, and pestered for inside information by William Byrne (Tom Burke), an ambitious journalist for a London paper, Lib realizes that extraordinary measures must be taken to save Anna from an increasingly volatile situation.
I’ve managed to add new production stills and a behind the scenes photo to the gallery.
