Wildcard searching on mult-word phrase

I have a particular document that contains North American and North America's but not North America. I'm trying to come up with a query string syntax that will return all North America records trying a query similar to the following:

POST movies/_search
    "query": {
        "query_string": {
            "fields": ["title"],
            "query": "\"north america*\""

After some reading, it appears that wildcards are not allowed inside quotes. If that is truly the case, is there some alternative to searching for a phrase where one of the words is not an exact match? Reading this article Learn Elasticsearch Stemming with Example, it appears using the English analyzer in parallel to the Standard analyzer might be an approach. This seems awfully expensive as each string field would be indexed twice.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
