Solo vacations offer the perfect opportunity for peace and quiet. It involves zero arguing about activities and meals. And that is the dream of those who are determined to finish a good book without interruption. For single travelers, however, it is also an opportunity for short, intense friendships with people you will most likely never see again. In the coming The lost daughter, Leda is a solo traveler who becomes friends with a young mother and her family. It evokes some very ominous memories of her own experience as a young mother. It’s a premise that sounds incredibly gripping. And the trailer is even more disturbing.
There is so much to unpack from this almost three minute preview. It starts off so calm, but descends into a tense, almost sinister atmosphere. Leda is a mother of two, but there is definitely something wrong. And of course, the film and the title of the novel could refer to Leda’s children or Dakota Johnson’s daughter. And what can we really expect from the tormented shocking moment?
Here is the official overview from Netflix:
Alone on a beach holiday, Leda (Olivia Colman) is devoured by a young mother and daughter while watching them on the beach. Leda is untouched by their compelling circumstances (and their violent and threatening extended family), overwhelmed by her own memories of terror, confusion, and intensity in 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.
Maggie Gyllenhaal wrote and directed the film. It is an adaptation of Elena Ferrante’s novel of the same name. Olivia Colman, Dakota Johnson and Jesse Buckley lead the cast. The picture roles have Ed Harris, Peter Sarsgaard, Paul Mescal, Dagmara Dominczyk, Alba Rohrwacher, Jack Farthing, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Panos Koronis, Robyn Elwell, Ellie Blake and Athena Martin.
The lost daughter falls in theaters on December 17th. It then debuts on Netflix on December 31st.
