About The Film
The Wonder takes place in 1862 in the Irish Midlands and was inspired by the craze of “fasting girls” in the 19th century. The narrative centres on Lib Wright, an English nurse who is sent to a tiny community to examine an 11-year-old girl who has reportedly gone without food for several months. Many visitors and pilgrims visit the town to witness the tragic occurrence for themselves.
