The Daughter

The story follows a man who returns home to discover a long-buried family secret, and whose attempts to put things right threaten the lives of those he left home years before.

The Daughter is a 2015 Australian drama film written and directed by Simon Stone, starring an ensemble cast led by Geoffrey Rush.

After a fifteen-year absence, Christian (Paul Schneider) returns home to rural New South Wales for the marriage of his father, Henry (Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush), the wealthy owner of the local mill that's been the economic bedrock of the community for generations.

'Made with taste, skill and discretion, "The Daughter" demonstrates both the staying power of classic material and the risks inherent in bringing it up to date.' Los Angeles Times

'In his atmospheric debut film, Australian theater director Simon Stone whittles down The Wild Duck into a cautionary tale about welcoming home an emotional exile.' Village Voice

'Subtle and skilled, this simmers for long periods until its highly satisfying finale.' Total Film

'Beautiful and powerful, The Daughter occasionally veers towards the melodramatic - but who cares when every element is this good?' One Room With a View
