The Daughter (15)

Dir. Simon Stone, Australia, 2015, 96 mins

After 15 years absence a young man returns to his dying hometown to attend his father’s wedding to a much younger woman. When a dark family secret comes to light the lives of those he left behind are threatened.

Previously adapted for the stage, Simon Stone’s feature film debut offers a fresh and contemporary approach to Henrik Ibsen’s timeless classic The Wild Duck.

Featuring Geoffrey Rush and Sam Neill The Daughter expertly unpicks family skeletons with elegant, brooding subtlety, building to a finale with an implosive emotional charge. Rising star Odessa Young is arguably the film’s most sparkling performer: she’s mesmerising, full of youthful effervescence and an emotional authority that powers the entire film.
