THE ETERNAL DAUGHTER Trailer: Tilda Swinton Plays Dual Roles in Joanna Hogg’s Ghost Story

After screening at Venice, TIFF, NYFF, and BFI London Film Festival, A24 will courteously release it in theaters on December 2.
The film centers on a filmmaker who takes her elderly mother to their old family manor, which has now turned into a near-vacant hotel. As the daughter tries to begin writing the script for her next film, she finds herself disturbed by strange noises and visions. During their stay, both mother and daughter confront the past and long-buried secrets as they begin to have a new understanding of one another.
