SPEC D: Si­mon Stone. Aus­tralia. 96 min. Sep 11, 5 pm Win­ter Gar­den; Sep 12, 8:45 am Is­abel Bader. Rat­ing: NN This lu­di­crously melo­dra­matic adap­ta­tion of The Wild Duck makes mince­meat out of Ib­sen’s play about a man who re­turns home af­ter years, dis­cov­ers fam­ily se­crets and makes bad choices about them.

The cast – Geo frey Rush as the man with a weak­ness for younger women, Paul Sch­nei­der as his drunken son and Odessa Young as a teenager com­ing of age – is ine, but the ma­te­rial is cat­a­stroph­i­cally clunky.

I laughed at the wrong times.

What the Duck? Geo frey Rush stars in The Daugh­ter.
