Netflix has set Maggie Gyllenhaal’s The Lost Daughter to close out 2021. The feature will arrive on the streaming platform December 31.

This will follow the film’s official premiere in select theaters December 17.

The Lost Daughter serves as Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut. She adapted the screenplay from the novel by Elena Ferrante. Here’s the official synopsis from Netflix:

Alone on a seaside vacation, Leda (Olivia Colman) becomes consumed with a young mother and daughter as she watches them on the beach. Unnerved by their compelling relationship, (and their raucous and menacing extended family), Leda is overwhelmed by her own memories of the terror, confusion and intensity of early motherhood. An impulsive act shocks Leda into the strange and ominous world of her own mind. There she’s forced to face the unconventional choices she made as a young mother and their consequences. 

The Lost Daughter also stars Jessie Buckley, Dakota Johnson, Ed Harris, Peter Sarsgaard, Dagmara Dominczyk, and Paul Mescal. (Sounds like a pretty impressive cast!)

Netflix acquired the distribution rights to the film earlier this month.

“I’m thrilled to be working with Netflix again. They have supported so much of the work I am most proud of, and this is no exception. Netflix has consistently championed filmmakers that excite and inspire me and I’m delighted to be included in that company,” Gyllenhaal said.

The Lost Daughter will first premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September, ahead of its December wide release. You can officially stream it on Netflix December 31.
