Got to attend a screening for #TheLostDaughter last night. A beautiful, complex, and moving cinematic experience. Refreshing to see films pushing the envelope through story telling and nuanced emotion. Congrats to #maggiegyllenhaal
#MaggieGyllenhaal directing a movie about the darkest recesses of motherhood & casting her own husband (& father of her kids) as the sexy let’s-run-away-together professor is truly the hottest thing a spouse has ever done. @thelostdaughter
the thing about #thelostdaughter is a hard look inside the shattering bits of motherhood, which have never been seen, imho. makes it so powerful. mothers as anti-heroes and heroic at the same time, strange territory.
a first film, unbelievable skill #maggiegyllenhaal & cast too.
"I don't know who she is."
@mgyllenhaal's screen-writing debut 'The Lost Daughter' was adapted from Elena Ferrante's novel, here's how they communicated despite Elena remaining completely anonymous 🎬📖
