The Marsh King’s Daughter Movie Review:-
The Marsh King’s Daughter is a crime-drama with a promising premise, but it falls short in providing essential insights. The film’s gripping plot and strong performances are complemented by a lack of screenplay support. The story revolves around Jacob (Ben Mendelsohn) and his family, including his wife Beth and daughter Helena (Daisy Ridley). Beth, who was kidnapped by Jacob 12 years ago, tries to escape their isolated marshland home but faces resistance from Helena. The film then takes a 20-year leap, revealing Helena’s stable married life and confronting her troubled past.
The remarkable cast, including Daisy Ridley as Helena and Ben Mendelsohn as Jacob, saves the film. Ridley delivers a controlled and haunting performance as a woman in constant inner turmoil, while Mendelsohn shines as the chilling antagonist. However, the film fails to delve deeper into the emotional aspects of its characters and their traumas, leaving much of the potential untapped and residing on the surface. The film’s success relies heavily on strong performances but lacks the screenplay support it needs.
