Netflix will release The Lost Daughter in the UK, and a new trailer gives us a fresh look at Maggie Gyllenhaal drama.
The feature directorial debut of the Oscar-nominated actor, it’s adapted by her from 2006 novel from best-selling author Elena Ferrante.
It follows a woman whose beach vacation takes a dark turn when she begins to confront the troubles of her past. The film stars Olivia Colman (The Favourite, The Crown), Jessie Buckley (I’m Thinking Of Ending Things), Dakota Johnson (A Bigger Splash, The High Note), Peter Sarsgaard (Jackie), Paul Mescal (Normal People), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (The Invisible Man), Ed Harris (Westworld) and Dagmara Domińczyk (Succession)
Several of them were in London last week for the UK premiere of the film at the London Film Festival, but since that premiere, there’s been a change behind the scenes – eOne, which was set to distribute the film in the UK, has sold the rights to Netflix.
Netflix already holds most of the international rights to the project, after a deal with Endeavor Content in the summer.
Gyllenhaal said at the time: “I’m thrilled to be working with Netflix again. They have supported so much of the work I am most proud of, and this is no exception. Netflix has consistently championed filmmakers that excite and inspire me and I’m delighted to be included in that company.”
The film will be released in cinemas in the UK, US and elsewhere on 17th December, before it streams worldwide on Netflix on 31st December. Here’s the trailer:
