The Father


Dir: Florian Zeller
Cast: Anthony Hopkins, Mark Gatiss, Olivia Coleman
2021 | 96 mins | UK | France

Almost 80, Anthony enjoys his freedom and independence more than anything and continues to reject every caretaker his daughter, Anne, attempts to hire for him. But the truth is that Anthony’s memory is rapidly deteriorating and Anne’s daily visits are no longer enough to ensure her father’s well-being. As Anthony becomes more and more disoriented, Anne begins to grieve the loss of her father, and their relationship suffers from the terrible impact the illness is having on their lives. Featuring an Oscar-winning performance by Anthony Hopkins as a man attempting to navigate the labyrinth of his own mind, THE FATHER is a heartbreaking, poignant and compassionate chamber piece about the devastation of dementia.
