      21% 66 Reviews Tomatometer 80% 100+ Verified Ratings Audience Score Known as The Sun King, Louis XIV (Pierce Brosnan) is the most powerful and influential monarch on the planet. Obsessed with his own mortality and the future of France, Louis turns to his spiritual advisor, Père La Chaise (William Hurt), and the royal physician to help him obtain the key to immortality. Believing a mermaid (Fan Bingbing) contains a force that grants everlasting life, Louis commissions a young sea captain to search the seas and capture the mystical creature. Further complicating his plans is his orphaned daughter, Marie-Josèphe (Kaya Scodelario), who returns to court with an abundance of elegance and an inherent defiance of authority. With a rare solar eclipse approaching, Louis will discover where his daughter's true loyalties lie as he races against time to extract the mermaid's life-giving force.

      Critics Consensus

      A muddled mess that was clearly tinkered with in post-production to little avail, The King's Daughter is a royal disappointment.

      Diana all of it was horrible Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/04/22 Full Review ARch123 I enjoyed the movie. It has a good message. The cinematography was amazing. The costumes didn't quite go with the time period, but seeing as it's a fantasy movie it could work. I would watch it again.

      Peter Debruge Variety The movie looks (and sounds) just terrific, even as it lurches rather inelegantly in pursuit of the magic the characters so clearly seek. Apr 24, 2022 Full Review tt stern-enzi WXIX-TV (Cincinnati, OH) The idea that it sat this long...I wish it just sat on the shelf a bit longer. Rated: D- Feb 1, 2022 Full Review Claudia Puig FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) A very colorful French bonbon with no substance, and it might just give you indigestion. Jan 26, 2022 Full Review Rick Bentley KGET-TV (Bakersfield, CA) The most amazing piece of this production is the setting. Much of the movie was shot on the actual grounds of Versailles and that gives the production both a great feel of authenticity and grandeur. Rated: 3/4 Aug 10, 2023 Full Review Chase Hutchinson The Inlander (Spokane, WA) The best thing that can be said about The King’s Daughter is that it is mercifully short at 90 minutes, though even that far overstays its welcome. Rated: .5/4 Sep 23, 2022 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Its not nearly as rancid as its seven-year delay would indicate, especially considering all the truly dreadful movies that hit the multiplex seemingly nanoseconds after filming has completed. Rated: 2.5/4 Apr 23, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
