Way back in May of 2014, Alice Rohrwacher’s Italian coming of age story The Wonders, about a family of farmers and beekeepers won the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. And after over a year of touring festivals, it’s finally getting a release date in the UK.

We originally compared the film in our Cannes 2014 review to an Italian Little Miss Sunshine, writing, “Rohrwacher takes a standard fish-out-of-water comedy , throwing in a few moments of beauty and absurd humor, but ultimately falls short of anything other than an updated but familiar tale of adolescence.” Here’s the full synopsis:

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.

Gelsomina wants to participate in the contest but her father is too consumed with the new farm laws and in getting his honey lab up to standard to consider his daughter’s dream. They work tirelessly to expand the bee colonies and even take on help – a delinquent German boy from a youth rehabilitation exchange program. But the tension mounts between her father and the boy and soon nothing will be the same for Gelsomina and her family.

The Wonders opens in the UK July 17 but does not yet have an American release date. Watch the new trailer below:
