Having just scared off his most recent carer, Anthony, an ailing, octogenarian Londoner gradually succumbing to dementia, feels abandoned when his daughter Anne tells him she’s moving to Paris. Refusing all assistance from his daughter, Antony is starting to lose his grip on reality, doubting his loved ones, his own mind and even the fabric of his reality. As faded memories and glimpses of lucidity trigger sudden mood swings, even time itself become distorted. Why has his younger daughter stopped visiting? And who are the strangers that burst in on Anthony?
Based on Director Florian Zeller’s award-winning source play Le Père, Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman deliver some of the best work of their careers, scoring Best Actor wins at the BAFTAs & Oscars for Hopkins. The Father does a heartbreakingly effective job of realistically depicting dementia.
