Actor Simon Stone makes his feature-length directorial debut with The Daughter (he'd previously helmed a segment of the anthology film The Turning). The acclaimed drama screened in competition in the Sydney Film Festival in June as its premiere, before moving onto several more prominent festival slots, including in competition at London, in the Venice Days comp at Venice and as a special presentation at Toronto. No exact US nor UK release dates are confirmed for The Daughter at present, but keep an eye out - this is a well-reviewed film from a promising filmmaker.
