Summer has now become much more sizzling! Catch Daisy Ridley in The Marsh King's Daughter when it premieres on May 10, 2024, on Lionsgate Play! The iconic story of "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree" follows the actor as she prepares for the inevitable fallout of her father's daring prison break. Will she do like her father did and become evil now that she has a daughter to protect? In addition to Ridley, The Marsh King's Daughter features Ben Mendelsohn, Garrett Hedlund, and Brooklyn Prince in its exciting premiere on OTTplay Premium as well.

The Marsh King's Daughter: A compelling storyline

When discussing the film, Daisy Ridley stated that she believes people will be very excited to see it. The actor can see that it already has a massive fan base. She believes that Mark (L. Smith) and Elle (Smith) adapted the novel such that, despite the alterations, the script is lively, engaging, and emotional; Karen (Dionne) did an amazing job with it. Everyone will get the book's vibe, although she believes it comes from a somewhat different angle.


Daisy continued, recalling how she received it last year and how, as she read it, her heart raced with excitement. She thought, "Wow, I really want to do this," as she neared the finish.

The perils of legacy

Having a criminal parent isn't exactly a dream come true, is it? In The Marsh King's Daughter, the kidnapper—actually, Helena's father—escapes from prison, triggering a severe case of Stockholm syndrome. The mysterious drama follows Helena as she strives to shield her daughter from the perils of her abandoned history. It stars Gil Birmingham, Caren Pistorius, Ben Mendelsohn, Garrett Hedlund, Daisy Ridley, and Prince. Can she stave off the monster that haunted her dreams as a kid? Can she guarantee her own safety? Ultimately, things tend to spiral downward from there.
