Forget the Dark Side, Daisy Ridley faces a different kind of evil in The Marsh King’s Daughter,a new thriller from Divergent director Neil Burger.
As seen in the brand new trailer, Ridley stars as Helena, a woman who might seem to be living an ordinary life, but buried in her past is a terrible secret. Her father, played by Ben Mendelsohn, kidnapped her mother and held them both captive in the wilderness for years, earning the infamous monicker of The Marsh King. When her Dad breaks out of prison, Helena is forced to confront her past and use the survival skills that he taught her.
The film is based on the novel by Karen Dionne, and co-stars Garrett Hedlund, Caren Pistorius, Gil Birmingham, and Brooklynn Prince.
The Marsh King’s Daughter opens in theaters on October 6th.
