Already considered a frontrunner in the awards season, Florian Zeller directs a screenplay by Oscar-winner Christopher Hampton (Dangerous Liaisons, Atonement) based on the filmmaker’s acclaimed play.
Starring Anthony Hopkins, Olivia Colman, Mark Gatiss, Imogen Poots, Rufus Sewell and Olivia Williams, The Father introduces us to Anthony (Hopkins) – an independently-minded firebrand, unaware that he is gradually losing his grip on reality.
Supported by his loving family, Zeller’s film breathtakingly depicts the jarring shifts in Anthony’s experience of daily life.
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.
