Director: Florian Zeller
Starring: Anthony Hopkins, Olivia Colman, Imogen Poots, Mark Gatiss
Anthony Hopkins delivers an Oscar-winning performance in The Father, the utterly engrossing and remarkable film adapted from the stage play of the same name. Hopkins plays the eponymous role of a mischievous and highly independent man who, despite feeling the impact of ageing, still lives alone and refuses his daughter Anne’s (Olivia Colman) assistance.
But when Anne announces she’s moving to Paris with her partner, they must find someone to help her elderly father. As he tries to make sense of his changing circumstances, he begins to doubt his loved ones, his own mind and even the fabric of his reality.
This heart-breaking and poignant depiction of dementia warmly embraces real life, lovingly reflecting upon the vibrant human condition and nestling in the truth of our own lives.
