The UK-Ireland co-production has an eye-catching longline. Taking place in the Irish midlands in 1859, the story follows an English nurse residing in Ireland (Pugh), who is summoned to an isolated village to observe an unusual patient — an eleven-year-old girl who has survived without food for months. The strange event, thought to be an unprecedented medical anomaly, causes a local sensation, bringing curious tourists to the region as well as catching the interest of a journalist. A reviewer of the novel compared it to Donoghue’s Booker-shortlisted Room, calling it a “domestic psychodrama that draws its power from quotidian detail as well as gothic horror, as a woman and a child at close quarters must draw on inner resources to survive an impossible situation.”

Principal photography for The Wonder begins on location in Ireland this August. Its main producers are Ed Guiney, whose Element Pictures has worked with Lelio and Birch multiple times, and Tessa Ross. Past collaborations between Element and Ross include Room and Yorgos Lanthimos’ 2015 smash The Lobster [+lee también:
