Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The characters don't have conversations so much as helpfully recite their back stories, and the long-buried secret is soon so obvious that the movie's last-act hysteria feels forced and a little ridiculous.
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: While the acting draws us into the story, it plays like a daytime soap opera with really good actors and Australian accents.
This is a fantastic movie! From start to finish I was enthralled. I was searching for a new indie to watch and I thought I may as well give this a chance and….WOW….I’m so glad I did. I’m a huge fan of thrillers so if that’s your thing I highly recommend this movie. It felt like a real throwback to the ’90’s thriller/ horror genre; psychological, well executed, and, most importantly, entertaining. I was pleasantly surprised to find some very strong acting, loved the lead woman.
no, the reviews are wrong
It a rote plod through the usual twists. Its stony, stiff, obvious, illogical. Every line is taken from another movie. ugh.
