Critic Reviews for The Daughter
It's a bit like an Australian soap opera, but low-key and true-to-life.
After a slow build, the final act picks up the pace but director Simon Stone shows his hand too early. Still, it's chilling to watch the wreckage pile up.
Theater director Simon Stone delivers a powerful, low-key yet achingly intense reimagining of Ibsen's 'The Wild Duck.'
The performances are uniformly affecting, particularly by Ewen Leslie as Oliver, whose decency makes the pain he endures all the more wrenching. Or it would, if you believed any of it.
Audience Reviews for The Daughter
I wanted to see this one at the cinema, so I was excited when the library got the DVD in. What can I say. Well acted, well made. Horrible ending. I think this is a movie that should have tied up a bit better at the end. Not saying it should have a happy ending necessarily,but I would have preferred for it to show one one way or the other. I felt most sorry for Hedvig, the teenage daughter, the boyfriend and that ending. Argh.
