Although seeing The Eternal Daughter's trailer is entertaining for anyone who has already watched the film, potential viewers shouldn't be misled; this is not a scary film. Although mainly in the literary sense, it is a ghost story. With Tilda Swinton stepping into the role of filmmaker Joanna Hogg's surrogate, Julie, and carrying on with her role as Rosalind, Julie's mother, Hogg continues the job of drawing inspiration from her own life that she began with her Souvenir films. Although this reviewer has only watched the first instalment of Hogg's diptych, she can attest that there may be a compelling connection between this movie and the director's prior two offerings. However, having that framework is by no means required.

Julie and Rosalind check into their hotel late one gloomy night in an unsettling beginning that sets up the tale's gothic package right away. The best haunted houses are hindered by the Welsh country estate, which is stunning but feels eerily alone and cut off from the rest of the world. Although Rosalind spent a lot of time here when she was younger, when it belonged to her aunt, Julie thinks the estate would make the ideal location for a getaway that serves as both a birthday present and research trip. She has decided that her mother will be the subject of her next film.

But things start to go wrong when Julie strikes up a conversation with the nastily young receptionist (Carly-Sophia Davies). While Rosalind, who takes a medication before bed, sleeps soundly, she is kept awake at night by strange noises and finds both this creative endeavour and her mother to be somewhat impenetrable. However, emotions begin to surface when she looks into the disturbances and unearths the past, and they wind up being much more than she anticipated.

As learning everything there is to learn about The Eternal Daughter is a significant part of the experience, it is challenging to explain more about the plot without giving away too much. The initially straightforward movie turns out to be trickier than it first appeared, yet at 96 minutes and with a relatively limited cast, it is still pretty lean. The final result is really the result of a few artistic decisions, and these decisions function best when the audience really absorbs them and considers what they might mean. For instance, the trappings of a ghost story raise questions about what a ghost is and what it means to be haunted.

Her relationship with her mother ultimately makes for the best film she can create about her, but it is so thoroughly filtered through her own prism that the two characters become mere shadows of one another. Perhaps one way to interpret the title is as follows: Despite her best attempts, the role of daughter cannot be transformed into the role of filmmaker. But there are additional interpretations that come from aspects of the film that aren't covered here, and it's best for viewers to figure those out for themselves. It can be incredibly gratifying for those who are inclined to do it.
