The Lost Daughter

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut - co-produced by the UK’s Pie Films - confronts the tensions of motherhood with unsettling intensity. Aided by two committed performances from British Oscar-winner Olivia Colman and Jessie Buckley as middle-aged and younger Leda, despite the Italian sun and setting, this drama bristles with chilly truths.





While on holiday in Italy, academic Leda (Olivia Colman) is forced to confront her own maternal ambivalence when she forms an attachment to a young mother (Dakota Johnson) that takes a sinister turn.
