  • BFI Releasing The Eternal Daughter

    Press release!

    A film by Joanna Hogg
    Starring Tilda Swinton

    Released on BFI Blu-ray, BFI Player Subscription, iTunes and Amazon Prime on 22 January 2024

    This beautifully composed drama centres on a middle-aged filmmaker and her mother, who spend a few nights in an old country hotel that holds meaning for them both. Featuring a towering, deeply moving and BIFA nominated performance by Tilda Swinton in dual roles, THE ETERNAL DAUGHTER is an intricately layered piece about motherhood, memory and loss, dressed up as a gothic chiller. Following its theatrical release by BFI Distribution on 24 November 2023, it is released on Blu-ray and BFI Player Subscription by the BFI on 22 January 2024, with special features including an audio commentary and filmed interviews.

    Swirling mist, looming shadows, a ghostly presence half-glanced in a window… embracing some of the heightened stylistic flourishes seen in THE SOUVENIR PART II, THE ETERNAL DAUGHTER takes Joanna Hogg into exciting new territory, while retaining her distinctive naturalistic signature. The film exists entirely as its own deeply enthralling and moving drama, but fans of the filmmaker’s recent work will also find it a puzzle box of metatextual delights.
