Watch: Moving Out in ‘Daddy’s Girl’ Short Film Made by Lena Hudson
“Is this what he’s into? There’s always something about him I never liked…” Time to move out!! Daddy’s Girl is a short film that first premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, now available online to watch. Written & directed by filmmaker Lena Hudson, Daddy’s Girl is an award-winning short film about a father/daughter relationship gone awry and the limits of our self-deceit – about a young woman whose charming but overbearing father helps her move out of her wealthy, older boyfriend’s apartment. Starring Tedra Millan and Peter Friedman, plus Rhett Rossi. The two lead performances are what this film work, otherwise it might be a bit too cringe. But there’s an awkardness that keeps it afloat, as it’s a story about a woman who should rethink her choices (much like Shiva Baby which is similar to this). View below.
