'The Wonder' review:
Friction between belief and reality
, tension bubbles between faith and fact around the very act of storytelling, disparate from truth.
A Fantastic Woman
director Lelio at the helm,
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
author Emma Donoghue's novel which was inspired by the 19th century "Fasting Girls" phenomenon.
