Dir. Florian Zeller | 2020, 97min
With Anthony Hopkins, Olivia Colman, Mark Gatiss, Rufus Sewell, Imogen Poots, Olivia Williams

“Anthony Hopkins is unforgettable. A towering piece of acting”
—Vanity Fair
“Combining mystery and psychodrama, The Father is a majestic depiction of things falling away”
—The New York Times, Critic’s Pick

Anthony Hopkins gives a tour-de-force performance as a mischievous octogenarian whose grip on reality is unraveling. He defiantly insists on living alone, rejecting the caregivers that his daughter (Colman) introduces, yet help is becoming a necessary for both their sakes. Immersing viewers in his ever-shifting mental state, this striking psychological drama offers an uncompromising and poignant look at what it’s like to lose someone while they’re still alive.
