The Daughter based on Henrik Ibsenís The Wild Duck

Next date: Feb 28, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

Drawing together a dream ensemble cast that includes Oscar winner Geoffrey Rush, Sam Neill, Miranda Otto and incendiary teenage newcomer Odessa Young, The Daughter is the feature debut of acclaimed Australian stage director Simon Stone. He reimagines for the screen his hugely successful stage adaptation of Ibsen's The Wild Duck, updated to 21st-century small town Australia. Paul Schneider is Christian, a prodigal son returning after many years to his rural hometown for his father's wedding. He finds the world he knew pushed into a deepening decline hastened by his father's recent closure of the local sawmill. His return brings with it the unraveling of a deep-rooted family secret that threatens to break apart the lives of the remaining townspeople and those once closest to him. The film mines Ibsen's themes of class and sexual division to suggest they are still painfully real in the contemporary world. While dysfunction and deception lie at the core of The Daughter, there is hope too, with each of the characters imagining something better - a future unencumbered by the sins and betrayals of the past.

Next date: Feb 28, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

Winfried doesn’t see much of his working daughter Ines. The suddenly student-less music teacher decides to surprise her with a visit after the death of his old dog. It’s an awkward move because serious career woman Ines is working on an important project as a corporate strategist in Bucharest. The geographical change doesn’t help the two to see more eye to eye. Father and daughter reach an impasse, and Winfried agrees to return home to Germany. Enter flashy Toni Erdmann: Winfried’s smooth-talking alter ego. Disguised in a tacky suit, weird wig and even weirder fake teeth, Toni barges into Ines’ professional life, claiming to be her CEO’s life coach. As Toni, Winfried is bolder and doesn’t hold back, but Ines meets the challenge. The harder they push, the closer they become. In all the madness, Ines begins to understand that her eccentric father might deserve some place in her life after all.
