About the Movie
The Wonders is an enchanting drama centered around a family of beekeepers who are struggling to make ends meet on their farm nestled deep in the Italian countryside. While the seemingly bucolic landscape and lifestyle harkens back to another era. The story takes place very much in the present, something which comes into sharp focus when a reality TV show (featuring a host played by Monica Bellucci) arrives in town intent on showcasing the family. At once beautiful, intimate, and completely transporting.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Ms. Rohrwacher's strengths here are the tender intimacy of the performances, particularly those of the older child actors, and her gentle meandering, both narrative and cinematographic.
Fresh: A story that frames a familiar conflict - the collision of modernity and tradition - in intriguingly off-center ways, alive with piercing detail.
Fresh: The Wonders has an intimate, subtly buzzing power.
Fresh: Rohrwacher handles her material with a richly detailed naturalism and a keen eye for the risks posed by Wolfgang's Promethean grandstanding to his children.
