FPTS – The Father (12A)

Watch Online –

Cert 12a, 2020, UK, 97 mins

Based on the play by Florian Zeller, screenplay by Christopher Hampton and Florian Zeller, directed by Florian Zeller.

Anthony (Anthony Hopkins) is 81 and lives defiantly alone, rejecting the carers that his daughter, Anne (Olivia Colman) tries to impose on him. Yet finding help is rapidly becoming a necessity for Anne as her life expands in other directions. Anthony’s sense of reality also seems to be slipping away. How does Anne cope as she feels the loss of her father, while he still lives and breathes before her? The Father warmly embraces real life dilemmas and loving reflects upon the human condition. Heart-breaking and uncompromisingly poignant — a movie that nestles in the truth of our own lives.

“Masterful and agonizing, The Father is a gorgeously crafted film.” New York Magazine
