The Father

Anthony Hopkins gives a tour de force of a performance that is often a difficult watch but his control of the character is astonishing. ” Richard Crouse

Led by stellar performances by Academy Award winners Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman, and artfully helmed by writer-director Florian Zeller, THE FATHER presents a devastatingly empathetic portrayal of dementia.

A man refuses all assistance from his daughter as he ages. As he tries to make sense of his changing circumstances, he begins to doubt his loved ones, his own mind and even the fabric of his reality.
