The Lost Daughter, which is the directorial debut of Maggie Gyllenhaal, made quite a splash on the festival circuit and it’s being spoken of as a darkhorse Oscar contender.

As for the film itself, it’s about confronting dark secrets from the past, which is always an interesting subject matter. We’ll all get a chance to judge the film for ourselves when it’s released in December.
For now, here’s the trailer!
