The Lost Daughter

For who ? Addicted to the sublime stories of Elena Ferrante ( A Prodigious Friend ), whose novel The Stolen Doll inspired this film.

On vacation in Greece, Leda, a literature teacher at the university camped by the imperial Olivia Colman ( The Crown, The Father ), takes advantage of her loneliness from her deckchair. Well surrounded by her books, her inner peace is constantly broken by noisy tourists, and particularly by a young mother ( Dakota Johnson ) in fusion with her little girl. Hypnotized, Leda watches them all day, thinking back to her own condition as a mother of two grown-up daughters. Through oppressive flashbacks, Maggie Gyllenhaal (actress and sister of Jake) signs a superbly filmed first production on the mental load ... which will have pushed Leda to the limit.

Until the abandonment or death of a child? We won't spoil you. What is certain is that the need to exist, to seduce, " to be " in the philosophical and practical sense of the term when one is a mother takes on its full meaning. The Lost Daughter turns out to be more topical than never and frankly uninhibited, served by a disturbing Olivia Colman If the participation of Dakota Johnson ( 50 Shades of Gray ) is almost anecdotal as her character is a mirror, we especially salute the performance as an actress of Jessie Buckley ( Wild Rose, Un Ordinary Spy ), who embodies Leda, still a young mother and on edge, ready to explode.

Available on Netflix

Her BFF, 7ven ( Amanda Cordner ), a queer feminist artist who assumes herself, offers her to drop everything to go to Berlin with her and find her way... Sabi is about to book her plane ticket, when she receives a call : the mother of the children he takes care of has just been plunged into a coma following a serious accident, and the family needs his help.
