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.
