The Son

2h 3m Drama 2023

AroView: A mature and undeniably powerful drama on the tough and tricky subject of teenage depression from director Florian Zeller (The Father), who adapts his own 2018 stageplay for the screen.

It might not get all the complex details right, but it has a fair crack at parental anxiety and is an admirable attempt to address a mental health crisis so sadly ubiquitous in these times that it comes with a trigger warning for many.

“Though perhaps not as original and accomplished as The Father, is nevertheless an affecting, empathetic and intelligent drama.” ~John Bleasdale, CineVue

“A bold, harrowing and unflinchingly sobering film that is admittedly not for every taste, but an unavoidably intelligent piece of filmmaking for mature viewers that I highly recommend.” ~Rex Reed, Observer
