The brand new trailer for The Lost Daughter captures Dakota Johnson and Jessie Buckley as they deal with their motherhood responsibilities, while Olivia Colman tries to enjoy her “working holiday.” Colman’s Leda meets Johnson’s Nina and the former keeps an eye on Johnson and her daughter during their time at the beach together.
Well, everything seems normal until Colman’s Leda warns the young mother Nina about her children. “Children are a crushing responsibility,” Leda notes, while Nina tries to figure out ways to manage her daughter's whims.

When asked about her own daughters, Colman displays a tragic expression, and notes, “I can’t remember much, actually,” while the clip shows Buckley as the younger Leda teaching her daughters how to peel an orange.
