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.

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