The movie follows her character, English nurse Lib Wright, who travels to Ireland to care for a girl who has miraculously survived without food for months. 

The official synopsis reads: ‘The Irish Midlands, 1862 – a young girl stops eating but remains miraculously alive and well. English nurse Lib Wright is brought to a tiny village to observe eleven-year old Anna O’Donnell’.

‘Tourists and pilgrims mass to witness the girl who is said to have survived without food for months. Is the village harbouring a saint ‘surviving on manna from heaven’ or are there more ominous motives at work?’.

The psychological thriller adapted from the novel by Emma Donoghue, is inspired by the 19th century phenomenon of the ‘fasting girls’.

Also starring Tom Burke, Toby Jones, Kila Lord Cassidy and Niamh Algar the movie is directed by Oscar winner Sebastián Lelio.

It comes amid the recent ‘Miss Flo’ drama during her last film DWD, where her director Olivia Wilde referred to her as such during a leaked phone conversation with her then co-star Shia LaBeouf.

A report from Page Six in late July claimed that Florence was upset with Olivia because she was hooking up with leading man Harry Styles during the production — while still engaged to Jason Sudeikis — before they split in November.

‘I can tell you for a fact that Flo seeing Olivia and Harry all over each other on set did not go down well as Olivia was still with Jason when she first hooked up with Harry,’ the source said.

Others have noticed that Florence sparsely posted about the film on her social media accounts, which has also fuelled rumours of friction on the set.

The actress missed the photocall for the movie during the Venice Film Festival earlier this month and kept her distance from the director on the red carpet.

Florence was asked by an Italian journalist  at the event about what she found ‘inspiring’ in the film and appeared to make a sly dig at Olivia.

She responded: ‘I think it’s very very inspiring to see a woman push back and say ‘no’, and question everything. It’s very exciting to see a woman do that on and off camera.’

Asked when she ‘says ‘no’ off camera, Pugh jokingly responded: ‘When do I say ‘no’? When someone says I can’t have cake.’

The rumours of tensions intensified after Olivia suggested Florence should have a ‘wake-up call’ in a leaked video this month.

The video was leaked after Shia refuted Olivia’s claim that he had been fired from the project, and in the footage Wilde can be heard encouraging LaBeouf to stay signed on to the film, rather than leave it, while also hinting at some apparent tension with Florence.  

Olivia gave an interview to Variety where she said Shia LaBeouf’s process was ‘not conducive to the ethos that I demand in my productions’ after the role was ultimately recast with her now-boyfriend Harry.

In response, Shia supplied alleged evidence to refute Wilde’s claims, including an email he sent to the director and a video that she allegedly sent to him, proving he walked away from the film rather than being fired.

Shia claims he ‘quit the film due to lack of rehearsal time’ on August 17th in 2020, and forwarded Variety two emails that he claims he recently sent to Wilde. 

Some studio sources have claimed to the publication that Shia had been fired, while another said his departure was down to a ‘collective recognition that LaBeouf’s style of acting wasn’t a good fit for Wilde’s approach as a director.’ 

THE WONDER will launch on Netflix November 16
