Daughter of Mine
(Figlia mia)

Laura Bispuri

Laura Bispuri’s transgender-themed 2015 feature Sworn Virgin was one of the most groundbreaking Italian debuts of the past decade and the director makes an eagerly-awaited return with a Sardinian-set story of a 10-year-old girl’s relationship with her biological and adoptive mothers.

"Bispuri makes an eagerly-awaited return..."

Bispuri elicits fully committed performances from Valeria Golino and Alba Rohrwacher (the latter in particular fully embracing the unbridled physicality of her role) and the idyllic, wind-swept Sardinian locations are captured with earthy, hand-held immediacy by Director of Photography, Vladan Radovic.
