Natasha Lyonne and Elizabeth Olsen Netflix project confirms release date

Netflix has acquired a new movie for its autumn roster, Azazel Jacobs’ His Three Daughters, which initially premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) last year. 

The acclaimed movie stars Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black; Russian Doll), Elizabeth Olsen (WandaVision; Avengers Endgame) and Carrie Coon (Fargo; Gone Girl) as siblings forced to reunite for the sake of their dying father. 

After its world premiere at TIFF, Netflix reportedly acquired the film in October 2023 for $7million. It is one of many potential Oscar winners that the platform has shown interest in over the past few years. In the hopes of establishing itself even more, the streaming service has been picking up high-profile movies, many of which, like Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma and Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story, have ended up winning accolades at the Academy Awards.

The film is Jacobs’ seventh, following titles like Terri, The Lovers and French Exit, with the latter starring Michelle Pfeiffer, who earned a Golden Globe nomination for her performance. His Three Daughters seems like it will be his most successful movie to date, however, if the positive reviews from critics are anything to go by.

Upon its debut at TIFF, the festival shared an official synopsis for the film: “When their father’s health worsens, three estranged sisters come together to try to plan for the inevitable.”

The movie revolves around the three highly different sisters as they navigate death. “The eldest is high-strung Katie, who talks a hundred miles a minute and stresses about all the practical details. The middle sister, Rachel, is ready to check out after spending a year taking care of the man. And the youngest sibling, Christina, seems always on the verge of tears, trying her best to clumsily keep the peace while they’re all stuck in their father’s small apartment.”

His Three Daughters also stars Jovan Adepo, Jose Febus, Rudy Galvan, and Jay O. Sanders. Although it will be available on Netflix on September 20th, it will first have a short theatrical run starting on September 6th.
