A new trailer is out for The Wonder, anstarring Florence Pugh. It's on Netflix next month, and the creeping folk horror atmosphere gives off serious Midsommar vibes.
Pugh is an Oscar-nominated actress who's starred in films including Little Women and Black Widow and whose latest movie,, made headlines last month for its . But it was her unnerving turn in Ari Aster's 2019 chiller Midsommar that brought her to a lot of people's attention. There's a definite comparison between that film and The Wonder's rural setting, religious foreboding and general sense of dread.
In the movie, set in the 1860s, Pugh's nurse examines an 11-year-old girl who claims not to have eaten for four months. Pugh's character, Lib, is determined to find out the truth.
"Do you know the dangers of a prolonged fast?" Lib can be heard asking young Anna, portrayed by Kíla Lord Cassidy, in the trailer.
"I don't need to eat," Anna says. "I live on manna, from heaven."
The Wonder is scheduled to hit Netflix on Nov. 16. You can watch the trailer below.
Before streaming, the movie will hit select theaters on Nov. 2. It's directed by Sebastian Lelio and based on a book of the same name by Emma Donoghue, author of Room.
