Mr. Movie: Part 3 of 2022 sleepers

Argentina 1985 belongs entirely to that country. In the 1970s, thousands of civilians were rounded up, imprisoned, tortured and “disappeared” by the military junta that ruled the country.

The mostly unknown cast of The Wonder manages to pull off an Irish story that is different. A young girl becomes famous throughout the country because she never eats and yet remains healthy. This is supposedly a religious miracle, and a strict and suspicious nun is sent to the girl’s home to check out the story. An interesting facet of the film is how most people seem to want and need
