The New Daughter follows the James family, as John (Costner, Dances With Wolves, Mr. Brooks) tries to rebuild his family after a painful divorce. John has his hands full raising his youngest child Sam (Griffith, Couples Retreat) and especially his adolescent daughter Louisa (Baquero, Pan's Labyrinth, in her first English-speaking role).
As Louisa's troubling behavior continues, far beyond the average tween angst and frustrations, John begins doubting his parental abilities. But when events around the James household start taking on an increasingly mysterious nature, John realizes that his family may be in mortal danger. Co-starring Samantha Mathis (The Punisher, The American President), The New Daughter is adapted by John Travis (The Haunting of Molly Hartley) from the short story by John Connolly.
