A group of old friends sit around a campfire. The mood is one of jovial recollection and reconnection, but as feather-light embers flit away into the night sky secrets lurk in the darkness that envelops them. A meandering tale into the unknown, of long-buried truths, parenthood and troubled filial relationships, The Daughter is a haunting and confidently-composed feature debut by Australian filmmaker and theatre man Simon Stone.
The Daughter will be in select UK cinemas from 27th May and is worth seeking out. Read my full CineVue review here.
