The Father (2021)

Drama 1h 36m

AroView: Anthony Hopkins reaches another career peak - and received another Academy Award - for his performance in this riveting chamber piece about an aging man who is losing his grip on reality.

It’s a deeply authentic yet unsentimental portrayal of dementia and the effect it has on the sufferer and their loved ones, but also a masterclass in storytelling from an unreliable viewpoint that will have viewers leaning out their seats with highest intrigue. And all the more remarkable for being the directing debut of Florian Zeller, who based the script on his own 2012 play, “Le Père”.

“Takes a bracingly insightful, subtle and nuanced look at encroaching dementia and the toll it takes on those in close proximity to the afflicted.” ~THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
