THE LOST DAUGHTER screens at Globe Cinema December 15.

In her feature directorial debut, Maggie Gyllenhaal adapts Elena Ferrante's striking 2006 novel. THE LOST DAUGHTER follows Leda (Olivia Colman), a divorced college professor on an Italian vacation where she meets and quickly becomes obsessed with a woman and her young daughter. As Leda gets increasingly involved in the lives of this other family, she is forced to confront her unsettling past. 

Oscar-winner Olivia Colman brilliantly embodies this quietly tempestuous character, finely shading in the enigmatic relationships she creates with strangers. A moving yet unsettling inquiry into motherhood and personal freedom, Gyllenhaal’s adaptation maintains Ferrante’s signature ambiguity and matter-of-fact style. The film features an outstanding supporting cast, including Jessie Buckley, Ed Harris, Dakota Johnson, Paul Mescal, Alba Rohrwacher and Peter Sarsgaard.
