    I hope both Johnson and Buckley get in and not one of the two. The three performances in this film are some of the best of the year. I hope it’s more of The Favourite than Spotlight (in terms of supporting players).

    Every time I see Jack Farthing I have to make sure he’s not Frances McDormand (pictured at the LFF premiere)

    MY LFF REVIEW

    Make no mistake – this film is practically made for Olivia Colman to just absolutely shine in. Not to take anything away from the other actors or crafts on display, but she owns the character of Leda from the first beat of The Lost Daughter. 

    Maggie Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut is a dark and twisted story of finding the balance between motherhood and independence. Gyllenhaal has delivered an intoxicating film that always leaves you on the edge – anticipating the worst but even then still unsure of what Leda and those around her will do next. 

    Olivia Colman is on sublime form in this, making a woman who’s not exactly the most likeable of people in her manner, so relatable. You’re on her side for a large chunk of the film – mainly when it’s Colman in command as the character. As the younger Leda, Jessie Buckley has the somewhat harder task of showing herself at her worst. You’re far less in her corner during these scenes, but Buckley does well to deliver a good performance here. 

    Of the three main cast members, Dakota Johnson’s Nina feels the most like an enigma. She’s present but not speaking for many parts of the film, leaving Johnson free to add her brilliance to the role. She certainly does this and leaves you wanting even more of her character. It’s the script that lets this, and other things, go unsaid. Gyllenhaal trusts her actors to not have to verbalise every thought for the audience.

    There’s an in built trust that she gives both the performers and viewers to reach their own conclusions – and it’s a much stronger, more intriguing film for it.

    OMG!!! This looks so good!!! Perched more than ever. Wasn’t expecting to be this dark. Olivia and Dakota served. They didn’t show much from Jessie, but I’m sure she’ll serve.

    GODggie Gyllenhaal is coming to snatch wigs, I fear.

    They did justice to all three of their performances in that trailer (especially Buckley’s) without revealing too much about the film. Brava Netflix.

    Manifesting that this trio gets the same recognition that The Favorite trio received.

    Best Ensemble at Mill Valley Fest! The LAST prize you would expect a film like this to win, honestly, but that just means… maybe Buckley & Johnson really CAN happen (I really hope they do! They’re honestly both fantastic & 100% deserving of nods).

    I’m not shocked at all; and the film had many excellent performances, not “just” the three lead women.
