Jen Offord (Standard Issue Podcast, author The Year of the Robin) and Hana Walker Brown (Broccoli Productions, author A Delicate Game) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Jen’s choice The Lost Daughter.
The Lost Daughter is a 2021 drama, based on the Elena Ferrante novel of the same name and directed by Maggie Gyllenhaal (her directorial debut). It stars Olivia Coleman as Leda, a university professor and translator on holiday in Greece. One day on the beach she meets Nina (Dakota Johnson) a young mother, when Nina’s three-year-old daughter goes missing for a short period Nina is faced with her own memories and feelings of being a mother, told in flashbacks with Jessie Buckley playing the young Leda. Paul Mescal, Peter Sarsgaard and Ed Harris also co-star.
Feelings about The Lost Daughter were mixed but there is no doubt about the powerhouse of acting on show – particularly from Coleman and Buckley playing Leda at different times of her life. The Lost Daughter is a bold choice by Gyllenhaal and Flixwatcher and guests look forward to seeing what she directs next.
The Lost Daughter scored fairly highly on recommendability but with a runtime of two hours the repeat viewing scores were lower to give an overall rating of 3.39.
