The Wonder (out Nov 3) is an interesting, well-assembled period piece. The opening suggests intrigue, the middle offers meaningful character development, and the finale provides food for thought. Set in a small Irish village in the year 1862, it's the tale of a nurse (Florence Pugh) investigating the hard-to-believe claim of a healthy 11-year-old girl who hasn't eaten for four months because she was touched by God. Grade: B+.
