The Eternal Daughter: Plot and Spoiler Ahead
To begin with, the movie has a spooky trailer, but the movie is not as spooky. It is a ghost story but with a twist. The movie is set in the same semi-autobiographical universe as that of the Souvenir films. The movie begins with an elderly mother who, with her daughter, visits the creepy Welsh hotel. The ghostly elements in the hotel consist of spotty cell reception, a Wi-Fi connection that only works on the top floor, and the obvious creaks and bangs of the daughter. The name of the mother is Rosalind.
Rosalhas spent her childhood in the hotel. Furthermore, all the rooms of the hotel remind Rosalind something of her past. However, most of these memories are not good memories.
