News, Toronto International Film Festival, TV Movies

Family drama His Three Daughters generated interest during its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

According to Deadline, the impressive ensemble film, starring Elizabeth Olsen (WandaVision), Natasha Lyonne (Poker Face), and Carrie Coon (The Gilded Age), has found a home on Netflix. The streaming service acquired the project from the film’s director, writer, and editor, Azazel Jacobs, for just under 7 million.

This “tense, captivating, and touching portrait of family dynamics” follows three estranged sisters who reunite in preparation for their father’s passing. As a result of living in close quarters, their lives converge, as do issues that have divided them for years.

However, when she is confronted by Coon’s controlling eldest daughter, Katie, their insurmountable differences expose a grief that goes beyond their parents.

TIFF Senior Programmer Jane Shoulette describes the film as “a story of what we cannot see, of the work it takes to peel back the layers of someone’s pain, and of the patience required to meet their joy.” As well as a “sharp snapshot of the bonds only siblings can share.”

 Olsen, Coon, and Lyonne all serve as executive producers on the project.
