"The novel is set in Irish Midlands, 1859 and follows an English nurse, Lib Wright (Pugh), who is summoned to a tiny village to observe what some are claiming as a medical anomaly or a miracle – a girl said to have survived without food for months. Tourists have flocked to the cabin of eleven-year-old and a journalist has come down to cover the sensation. The Wonder is a tale of two strangers who transform each other’s lives, a psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil."
That's kinda vague, but I prefer it that way -- better to let the movie surprise me. Similarly I won't go read the book, but if any of you have please tell me if all of this sounds like a good idea! I kind of hope they change the title -- there are too many movies with too similar a title to The Wonder already. I don't want to be forced to think about that bad Terrence Malick movie with Ben Affleck, god forbid, during this.
