The Lost Daughter

Olivia Colman gives a powerhouse turn in The Lost Daughter, prickly and combustible as Leda Caruso...Gyllenhaal’s delicious drama might seem like a storm in a teacup. But what a cup, and what a storm.★★★★ ” The Guardian

Alone on a seaside vacation, Leda (played by a superb Olivia Colman) becomes consumed with a young mother (Dakota Johnson) 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.
Gaining incredible reviews with an all-star cast including Olivia Colman, Jessie Buckley, Dakota Johnson and Paul Mescal (Normal People.)
