Netflix has released the first trailer for The Wonder, starring Florence Pugh. Based on the book by Emma Donoghue, the film takes place in1862, 13 years after the Great Famine.

An English Nightingale Nurse Lib Wright (Florence Pugh) is called to the Irish Midlands by a devout community to conduct a 15-day examination over 11-year-old Anna O’Donnell (Kíla Lord Cassidy) – who claims not to have eaten for four months, surviving miraculously on “manna from heaven." As Anna's health rapidly deteriorates, Lib is determined to unearth the truth, challenging the faith of a community that would prefer to stay believing.

In the brief clip, which can be viewed above, Pugh's Lib struggles to accept both Anna's and the community's claims that a miracle is keeping her alive.

The period drama is directed by Sebastian Lelio (Disobedience, Gloria Bell) from a screenplay by Donoghue, Lelio, and Alice Birch.
