Ridley Scott 'proud of daughter's film Cracks'
Based on Sheila Kohler's novel of the same name, Cracks was screened at London Film Festival.
Although Kohler's drama was set in a South African school, the film's setting is a 1930s girls' boarding school in England.
Bladerunner director Sir Ridley also said he was impressed with London Film Festival.
"I think the festival is coming to its maturity ... It's finally getting recognised in terms of a festival and I think that's long overdue," he added.
Jordan revealed she was "slightly daunted" about following in her father's footsteps in directing her first feature film.
"His films are very different and I'm a girl so hopefully there won't be any comparisons," she added.
French actress Eva Green, who played Vesper Lynd in Bond flicks Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale, starred in Cracks, alongside St Trinian's Juno Temple and Imogene Poots (28 Weeks Later).
