Florence has been cast as the lead role in the film adaptation of ‘The Wonder’, a psychological thriller by Irish writer Emma Donoghue – who also wrote ‘Room’.
The film is set in the Irish midlands in 1862, and follows the national sensation of a “fasting girl” – a young girl who stops eating but remains alive and healthy.
Florence will star as a British nurse who travels to an isolated village to observe a young girl who has survived months without food.
According to IMDB, the movie is “a tale of two strangers who transform each other’s lives, a psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil”.
The film is being directed by Oscar-winning Sebastián Lelio, and has adapted by Alice Birch – who worked on ‘Normal People’.
Florence’s arrival comes after Hollywood actor Patrick Dempsey returned to the US after spending the summer in Ireland – filming the sequel to Disney’s Enchanted in Enniskerry, Bray and Dublin.
