An effervescent musical from New Zealand, “Daffodils” is a bittersweet love story told with enchanting re-imaginings of iconic New Zealand pop songs. Leaving her dying father’s bedside, Maisie rushes to sing at an indie music gig. But as she performs, it’s hard for her to ignore the heartfelt story she’s just been told about how her dad met and fell in love with her mother, and how it all devastatingly fell apart. Told with warmth and liveliness, and filmed in vivid hues worthy of its title, this is a spirited charmer that beautifully captures the nuances of a marriage as the decades unfold.
