The Daughter

The Daughter

The Daughter is a big screen adaptation of the play by Henrik Ibsen and sees Simon Stone in the director's chair. While Stone was part of the ensemble directing team of The Turning, this will be his directorial debut on a solo project.

As well as being in the director's chair for the film, Stone has also adapted Ibsen's play into a screenplay.

There're just a few days to go until The Daughter is released and here is a great new clip to whet your appetite. Take a look:

Stone has brought together a fantastic cast as Geoffrey Rush, Ewen Leslie, Paul Schneider, Miranda Otto, Anna Torv and Sam Neill are all set to star.

The movie will also introduce us to the acting talents of Odessa Young, as she takes on the role of Hedvig in what is only her second feature film. She is an actress to keep an eye on over the next couple of years.

In the last days of a dying logging town, Christian (Schneider) returns to his family home for his father Henry's (Rush) wedding to the much younger Anna (Torv). While home, Christian reconnects with his childhood friend Oliver (Leslie), who has stayed in town working at Henry's timber mill and is now out of a job.

As Christian gets to know Oliver's wife Charlotte (Otto), daughter Hedvig (Young) and father Walter (Neill), he discovers a secret that could tear Oliver's family apart. As he tries to right the wrongs of the past, his actions threaten to shatter the lives of those he left behind years before.

The Daughter premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year and has been winning over critics and audiences ever since. The Daughter is set to be a compelling relationship drama and a welcome break from all of the big budget blockbusters.

The Daughter is released 27th May.
