NZ Herald 3.5/5 Stars "Daffodils is a delight."
DAFFODILS stars international kiwi actors Rose McIver (iZombie, The Lovely Bones) and George Mason (Home & Away, Go Girls) alongside Grammy® Award-winning singer/songwriter Kimbra, in her big screen debut in a musical and acting role. All three lead roles returned home to New Zealand to star in this heart aching drama of a 1950's marriage, told with iconic New Zealand music.

DAFFODILS, is written by the playwright Rochelle Bright, directed by David Stubbs (Belief: The Possession of Janet Moses, Reservoir Hill) and produced by Richard Fletcher (The Changeover, Walking with Dinosaurs 3D, Boy).
