The Daughter | Ratings & Reviews

"Deeply involving and emotionally searing, “The Daughter” reps a confident and profoundly moving bigscreen debut for established theater director Simon Stone."


"I was engrossed by the elements and the superb look of the film, yet I felt a little disappointed that it never yields the emotional power that it should."

Urban CinefileUrban Cinefile

"The writer-director returns to The Wild Duck for his lush, moody feature debut, reconfiguring Ibsen with sublime production values and a pedigree cast."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"The entire cast responds to the director's subtle and intelligent vision, giving performances that resonate long after the film is over."

The AustralianThe Australian

"It's a noble effort but Stone's direction is far from pitch perfect and Ibsen and the laconic tones of Australian country life don't really make a match."

Sydney Morning HeraldSydney Morning Herald

"Succeeds in conveying intimacy and conjuring tension courtesy of strong performances."

Screen DailyScreen Daily

"The weighty effort, which premiered at the Sydney Film Festival, succeeds in conveying intimacy and conjuring tension courtesy of strong performances, and will appeal to audiences fond of textured emotional dramas, even though its narrative wallows in familiar territory."

Screen DailyScreen Daily

"It left me sobbing. And that's a rare and precious thing."


"Well-acted but unconvincing."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Delicately unsettling and decidedly affecting in equal measure, this well-acted Australian drama is sure to divide audiences in coming weeks."
