The Father

The Father (2020) is an academy award winning film based on Florian Zeller's 2012 play 'Le Pere'. Starring Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman, this psychological drama follows the story of an ageing man, Anthony, who must deal with his progressing dementia whilst living alone and defiantly rejecting the carers that his daughter, Anne, encouragingly introduces.

Yet help is also becoming a necessity for Anne; she can't make daily visits anymore and Anthony's grip on reality is unraveling. As we experience the ebb and flow of his memory, how much of his own identity and past can Anthony cling to? How does Anne cope as she grieves the loss of her father, while he still lives and breathes before her?

The Father warmly embraces real life, through loving reflection upon the vibrant human condition; heart-breaking and uncompromisingly poignant -- a movie that nestles in the truth of our own lives.
