“Two glorious sides of Tilda Swinton ... the actress astonishes in two roles.” —New York Times

An artist and her elderly mother confront long-buried secrets when they return to a former family home, now a hotel haunted by its mysterious past. The Eternal Daughter features a towering, deeply moving performance by Tilda Swinton in dual roles. Acclaimed director Joanna Hogg’s new film is a brilliant and captivating exploration of parental relationships and the things people leave behind.
