TheWrap - Tomris Laffly
In the end, Lelio earns the powerful close of The Wonder with every temperate turn. His film, a career-best, departs like a birdsong, with an optimistic finale as perfect and revelatory as they come.

The Hollywood Reporter - Stephen Farber
Nothing would work quite as well without the performance by Pugh. She commands the screen from her very first appearance, and we never have doubts that anyone who tries to interfere with her will be facing a formidable adversary.

Los Angeles Times - Justin Chang
Lelio and his co-writers have made a smart, subtle disquisition on the necessity of both skepticism and faith, with a particularly keen understanding of religion’s uses and abuses.

The Guardian - Benjamin Lee
A film about the danger of believing without questioning that turns us into full-throated believers in whatever Lelio and Pugh can do.

We Got This Covered - Martin Carr
Surrounded by a solid ensemble of cast iron characters actors, The Wonder tries to address some serious issues beneath the guise of a beguiling period piece. What audiences are ultimately left with equates to a moral fable with female empowerment holding things together.
