Watch Olivia Colman And Dakota Johnson In First Trailer For ‘The Lost Daughter’

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut, The Lost Daughter, has finally released its first trailer. The drama, which is based on Elena Ferrante’s novel of the same name, stars Olivia Colman, Dakota Johnson and Jessie Buckley.

In the film, Colman plays a middle-aged woman vacationing alone and having flashbacks to her days as a young wife and mother.

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.

This film will hit select theaters on December 17, followed by a nationwide release on Netflix on December 31, so clearly they’re hoping this movie brings home some awards.

The Lost Daughter premiered at the Venice Film Festival, where it received overwhelmingly positive reviews. Variety called the casting of Colman ‘subversive’ and of Buckley ‘inspired,’ while noting that Gyllenhaal ‘assumes an unfussy, practically invisible non-style that conveys the essential while privileging the performances.’

Certainly sounds like it has the potential to impress. Check out the first trailer below…
