'The Wonder' review: Friction between belief and reality

In The Wonder, tension bubbles between faith and fact around the very act of storytelling, disparate from truth.

With A Fantastic Woman director Lelio at the helm, The Wonder stars Pugh as English Nightingale nurse Lib Wright.

Lib endures a long journey, over sea, through rain, and upon horse-drawn cart to reach a remote village.

Her mission is to visit the O'Donnells living beyond the village, and conduct a two-week examination of their daughter Anna.

The film is based on Room author Emma Donoghue's novel which was inspired by the 19th century "Fasting Girls" phenomenon.
