Description

‘The Eternal Daughter’ is a mysterious drama with an impressive double role by Tilda Swinton, who plays both a filmmaker and her mother. Julie (Swinton) and her mother Rosalind (again, Swinton) travel to an old family home in Wales, which is now used as a hotel. In this remote mansion, where Rosalind spent her childhood, old family secrets lurk that keep Julie awake at night. She hopes to get to know her mother better, but is confronted with shadows from the past… The film was written and directed by Joanna Hogg, who made a big impression with ‘The Souvenir’ and ‘The Souvenir Part II’, both also starring Tilda Swinton.

‘A moving and disconcerting move into pseudo horror from the director of “The Souvenir”… There’s real intimacy and emotional generosity to this psychological mystery from Joanna Hogg… Tilda Swinton gives a touching and wittily differentiated doppelgänger performance.’—Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
