    The Lost Daughter

    ★★

    Maggie Gyllenhaal + Olivia Colman + Ferrante is the combo of dreams and yet THE LOST DAUGHTER felt like riding a rollercoaster while hungover: a dizzying experience with a bitter aftertaste. At times over-scrutinised, at others aimless, this one was a painful miss. 

    I will, however, give laurels where they're due: Jessie Buckley as a younger Olivia Colman is an asserted feat of casting. Both actresses fluctuate between the primal and the tamed with an ease that is mesmerising to watch.

    I will need to sit with SPENCER for a little while, my thoughts still haunted by the blend of beauty and pain that Pablo Larraín masters like few others. What I will say is that Jonny Greenwood, Claire Mathon, Jacqueline Durran and Kristen Stewart are all on top form. 

    Also, I thoroughly enjoyed the overexposed historical parallels. Who needs subtext when we can muse over the beautifully melancholic intertwined fates of Anne Boleyn and Princess Diana?
