Sebastián Lelio’s THE WONDER is at once a radical departure from his Chilean cinematic roots, and of a piece with his previous explorations of women looking to break away from the social barriers that constrain them.  Set in The Irish Midlands in 1862, the story follows a young girl who stops eating but remains miraculously alive and well. English nurse Lib Wright (Florence Pugh) is brought to a tiny village to observe eleven-year old Anna O’Donnell, who is said to have survived without food for months. What she discovers will soon change the course of her life forever.

Masking is strongly encouraged at all screenings at The Clairidge when not eating or drinking. Please visit this page for our full set of COVID-19 safety protocols.
