Alice Rohrwacher’s coming-of-age tale The Wonders comes out on DVD September 14th.
At twelve years of age Gelsomina runs her unconventional Italian family with her three younger sisters working under her watchful eye. Together they keep the bees and make the honey on their father’s farm oblivious to the world outside of their own.
Whilst all around them the countryside is being burnt up by pesticides and rural life is falling apart, a TV show competition arrives from the city offering a cash prize and a luxury cruise for a family that can prove it’s the most traditionally Italian.
