Netflix has remained steadfast in producing content since the pandemic began, introducing the world to a variety of new shows and films to combat the mundaneness of quarantine. They have certainly done an excellent job to say the least, entertaining viewers with series such as Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness and The Queen’s Gambit that truly exhibit how diverse their programming has become. Even as the pandemic has begun to wind down, the media giant has remained hard at work ensuring that subscribers are constantly entertained regardless of what may be going on around them. Now they have unveiled the first official trailer for their latest project in The Lost Daughter, Maggie Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut that is poised to be one of the most captivating films of the year.
While she is notorious for her work in front of the camera, Maggie Gyllenhaal is earning her credit behind the camera the old fashioned way. Her directorial debut The Lost Daughter is set to debut on Netflix in the coming weeks, with the first official trailer for the project unveiled earlier this week. In it, we see Olivia Colman, who also starred in the Netflix original series The Crown, plays a professor on a seaside vacation who gets a front row seat to watch a dysfunctional family at play, only triggering her own painful memories from the past. The cerebral film has been lauded by critics who have seen the film already, and now the official trailer can be seen below for interested viewers. The Lost Daughter is set to debut on Netflix this New Year’s Eve, December 31st.
Netflix is no stranger to gritty and daring content, and The Lost Daughter looks to be the next installment of that. While it may seem much more modest on the surface, it is obvious that the story at the center of the film is bound to include some twists and turns. Netflix subscribers will need to just wait a few short months until The Lost Daughter premieres on December 31st.
