The Wonder15

In a small Irish village in 1862, an English nurse to sent to observe a young girl who has supposedly not eaten in months but amazingly remains alive and well. As tourists and pilgrims flock to witness this supposed miracle, the nurse begins to suspect ominous motives at work. Religious faith and rational science collide in Oscar-winning director Sebastián Lelio’s (A Fantastic Woman) gothic period drama adapted from the acclaimed novel by Emma Donoghue (‘Room’).

Reviews

‘Pugh is riveting: she makes you feel Lib’s mind pushing at the walls of this bizarre scenario, scratching for the chink in the fiction that will lead her to truth.’
★★★★★
Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

‘It’s Pugh and Cassidy who are especially remarkable in this story of faith versus science, and a strong-willed woman trying to do the right thing in a man’s world.’
★★★★
Anna Smith, Metro

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
