Olivia Colman, Jessie Buckley, Dakota Johnson and Peter Sarsgaard hav joined the cast of Maggie Gyllenhaal’s feature directorial debut The Lost Daughter, which Endeavor Content will introduce to worldwide buyers at the EFM in Berlin net week.

As previously announced, Gyllenhaal adapted the Elena Ferrante novel, and is producing with Talia Kleinhendler and Osnat Handelsman-Keren through their company Pie Films, and Charlie Dorfman. Endeavor Content and Dorfman, through his Samuel Marshall Productions, are financing.

Colman will play a university professor on a seaside summer hoiday who becomes consumed by Nina (Johnson) and her young daughter, as she watches them on the beach.

Unnerved by their compelling relationship, and their raucous and menacing extended family, she becomes overwhelmed by her own memories of the terror, confusion and intensity of early motherhood.

Forced to consider the unconventional choices she made as a young mother and the consequences they had for her family, she begins to unravel.

“When I finished reading Elena Ferrante’s “The Lost Daughter,” I felt that something secret and true had been said out loud,” said Gyllenhaal. “And I was both disturbed and comforted by that. I immediately thought how much more intense the experience would be in a movie theatre, with other people around. And I set to work on this adaptation.

“I find that the script has attracted other people interested in exploring these secret truths about motherhood, sexuality, femininity, desire. And I’m thrilled to continue my collaboration with such brave and exciting actors and filmmakers.”
