The Wonders (by Alice Rohrwacher)



The Wonders (by Alice Rohrwacher)

Screening in Italian with English subtitles

Alice Rohrwacher's bittersweet tale about the onset of adulthood and the fading of old ways is as powerful as it is enchanting.

A farmer and his family with a minor business producing honey are offered two opportunities for cash. One is when the social services offer them money to look after a 14-year-old boy who has been ordered into a family rehab programme. The other is when they get the chance to compete for a wacky TV competition in which the contestants are farmers – hosted by no less a person than Monica Bellucci, in a queenly cameo. These remarkable events have a potent effect on the family’s mature and thoughtful eldest daughter, Gelsomina (Maria Alexandra Lungu), accelerating her entry into womanhood; the “wonders” of the title could mean those natural unheralded wonders of nature that occur when children start to become grownups independent of their mum and dad.

The Wonders (Italian: Le meraviglie) is a 2014 internationally co-produced drama film directed by Alice Rohrwacher. It was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or in the main competition section at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival,where it was awarded with the Grand Prix.
