While The Lost Daughter doesn’t let us know what to think, it is an authentic glance at motherhood. Directed and Written by Maggie Gyllenhaal. The Lost Daughter debut on Theaters 17 December 2021 and on Netflix 31 December 2021. This sort of film used to be made by huge film studios in the last part of the 1970s – 1980s. Yet, with all of the combination of film studios, these motion pictures became rare. If not for streaming, spine chillers would just be made for TV projects.
