Winner of the Academy Award for Best Actor: Anthony Hopkins.
Winner of the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.
In THE FATHER, Hopkins plays the eponymous role of a mischievous and highly independent man who, as he ages, refuses all assistance from his daughter Anne (Olivia Colman). Yet, such help has become essential following Anne’s decision to move to Paris with her partner. As Anne’s father 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.
“A brutal, trippy portrait of what it must feel like to lose your grip on reality boasts an Oscar-worthy performance…“- The Guardian ★★★★
THE FATHER is drawn from the stage play of the same name, which was written by director Florian Zeller and launched in Paris in 2012, winning a Moliere Award for Best Play, before hitting Broadway and London’s West End, where it won both Tony and Olivier Awards for Best Actor (for Frank Langella and Kenneth Cranham respectively).
