Maggie Gyllenhaal speaks on her directorial debut: “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.”

Endeavor Content’s Deborah McIntosh and Negeen Yazdi said: “We are honored to be part of this special journey with Maggie, her extraordinary group of collaborators, and now our new partners at Netflix, to bring this powerfully complex story to audiences around the world.”

Production took place in Greece in 2020 and the film will make its world premiere at the 2021 Venice Film Festival.

The deal furthers Netflix’s relationship with Gyllenhaal, following the 2018 release of The Kindergarten Teacher, in which she starred and earned rave reviews from critics.

Other distributors for The Lost Daughter include: eOne (UK/Benelux/Germany), Empire (South Africa), Pathé (Switzerland), Spentzos (Greece), Sena (Iceland); Bim (Italy), Vertigo (Spain),NOS Lusomundo (Portugal); Svensk (Scandinavia); Bir (Turkey), Blitz (Ex-Yugo), Monolith (Poland), United King (Israel), Falcon (Indonesia), Green Narae (South Korea), Salim Ramia (Middle East).
