Set in the last days of a dying logging town, Christian (Schneider) returns to his family home for his father Henry's (Rush) wedding. Reconnecting with his childhood friend Oliver (Leslie) and Oliver's family, wife Charlotte (Otto) and daughter Hedvig (Young), he unearths a long-buried secret. As he tries to right the wrongs of the past, his actions threaten to shatter the lives of those he left behind years before.
Making his feature debut, Sydney theatre’s enfant terrible Simon Stone corrals stars Geoffrey Rush, Paul Schneider, Sam Neill and Miranda Otto into a family tragedy which plumbs the usual depths of secrets and lies. Two layers of adaptations converge in the writer/director’s The Daughter, a version of his own award-winning staging of Ibsen’s The Wild Duck. The weighty effort, which premiered at the Sydney Film Festival, succeeds in conveying intimacy and conjuring tension courtesy of strong performances, and will appeal to audiences fond of textured emotional dramas, even though its narrative wallows in familiar territory.
