Fathers and Daughters is a 2015 American-Italian drama film directed by Gabriele Muccino and starring Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried and Kylie Rogers. It is based on a 2012 script written by Brad Desch, which was included in the 2012 Black List survey.[3]


A Pulitzer-winning writer grapples with being a widower and father after a mental breakdown, while, 27 years later, his grown daughter struggles to forge connections of her own.




Gabriele Muccino was hired to direct during the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.[7] Russell Crowe was the first cast in October,[8] with Amanda Seyfried joining the same month as Crowe's daughter.[9]


In November, Aaron Paul was cast in the film as Seyfried's love interest.[4] Actresses Diane Kruger, Octavia Spencer and Quvenzhané Wallis were cast in the film during the Berlin Film Festival.[10] The same month, Janet McTeer was cast.[5] In April 2014, it was announced Jane Fonda, and Bruce Greenwood had joined the cast of the film.[11]


Crew members scouted Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as a filming location, with production slated for an April start date.[12] Filming officially began on March 14 in Pittsburgh.[13]


On May 25, 2014 James Horner was originally hired to compose the music for the film,[14] but later on September 26, Paolo Buonvino replaced Horner to score the film.[15]
