"★★★★ – double Tilda Swinton haunts ghostly hotel chiller" – Financial Times

★★★★ – Guardian

★★★★ – Arts Desk

Joanna Hogg’s (The Souvenir pt I & II) simultaneous musing on loss, regret, celebration and affection, cloaked in a haunting ghost story is filled with duality, both warm and emotional yet chillingly ethereal.

Tilda Swinton is captivating in her roles as both mother and daughter, her deft skill making it impossibly easy to believe you’re watching two artists at work.

A tribute to her own late mother, Hogg’s close personal connection to The Eternal Daughter results in an enveloping film cradling you tight until the final gut punch.

This film features a 10-minute Q&A featuring Tilda Swinton and Joanna Hogg, recorded at BFI Southbank, London on Friday 10 November, Joanna and Tilda discuss with film journalist Francine Stock the making of the film, plus their inspirations.
