Florence Pugh is a nurse on a mission in the new Netflix movie Miracle. The actor plays an English nurse who is called to an Irish village to deal with a very unique case. Netflix released a creepy trailer for the movie on October 4th.
Here’s how Netflix describes “The Wonder”: “1862, 13 years after the Great Famine. English nightingale nurse Lib Wright (Florence Pugh) is summoned to the Irish Midlands by a pious community to conduct a 15-day examination of one of their own, Anna O’Donnell ( Kyla Lord Cassidy) is an 11-year-old girl who claims she hasn’t eaten anything for four months and is miraculously alive thanks to “manna from heaven.” As Anna’s health rapidly deteriorates, Lib is determined to unearth the truth, defying society’s belief that would prefer to keep believing.”
The film is directed by Sebastián Lelio, who also wrote the screenplay along with Emma Donoghue and Alice Birch. Donahue also wrote the novel Miracle, which was made into a movie. Donahue previously adapted her novel The Room into a 2015 film of the same name. She was nominated for an Oscar for this script. Brie Larson won an Oscar that year for her leading role in the film. Could Miracle also launch Pugh into this year’s Best Actress race? We will have to wait and see.
