Something about Tilda Swinton taking the lead in a gothic ghost story totally makes sense, doesn’t it? So it’s a good thing that Hogg doubled down on his star cast to give us double Swinton in one film. “The Eternal Daughter” marks the continuation of the longstanding creative partnership between this duo, who have been friends for over 50 years and if we are lucky, they will continue to work together as time goes on.
“The Eternal Daughter” debuted to solid reviews at the Venice Film Festival, which only continued after screening at TIFF ad NYFF. /Chris Evangelista’s cast gave the film positive reviews, writing, “Bathed in the perfect spooky gothic setting, ‘The Eternal Daughter’ burns like a candle. It creeps in, pulling us into its beautiful story, keeping us wondering where it is going. all of this will go away.” He added,
“With its deliberate (or sloowwwwwww, as some might call) pacing and lack of action, “The Eternal Daughter” may frustrate some in seeking a more traditional ghost story. But “The Eternal Daughter” haunts a lot. The ghosts here are not traditional ghosts coming back from the grave. They are the kind of ghost that haunts us all — memories, good and bad.”
“The Eternal Daughter” will hit theaters on December 2, 2022.
