See Olivia Colman in “The Lost Daughter” – Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Directorial Debut

Netflix has released the trailer for an upcoming drama starring Olivia Colman, Jessie Buckley, Dakota Johnson, Peter Sarsgaard and more. “The Lost Daughter” arrives on December 31st (following a theatre run in December) and is Maggie Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut from a script she adapted from the novel by Elena Ferrante. The film follows Leda (Colman) who, while alone on a seaside vacation, becomes consumed with a young mother and daughter as she watches them on the beach. Unnerved by their compelling relationship, (and their raucous and menacing extended family), Leda is overwhelmed by her own memories of the terror, confusion and intensity of early motherhood. An impulsive act shocks Leda into the strange and ominous world of her own mind, where she is forced to face the unconventional choices she made as a young mother and their consequences.
