Young star Jacob Tremblay astonished audiences with his nuanced performance in Room, opposite Oscar winner Brie Larson, and now the Canadian is set to do it all again in Wonder.
Based on the novel by R.J. Palacio, the film follows a young boy with facial differences who has been in and out of hospital for 17 surgeries. He then enters the 5th grade, marking his first time out of homeschool, and encounters prejudices and new friends.
The film’s first trailer is a heartbreaking but hopeful watch, and was just released today.
Wonder features a brilliant supporting cast including Homeland‘s Mandy Patinkin, Oscar winner Julia Roberts, and Owen Wilson.
Whether the film will see Jacob Tremblay through another awards season remains to be seen, but there’s no doubt this star performer is going to make audiences sing his praises after Wonder is released on November 17 in the US and UK and on November 30 in New Zealand and Australia.
