The Father

(12A)

Winner of 2 Academy Awards – Best Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay    

Based on his own stage play of the same name, Florian Zeller directs this immersive and empathetic film around the disorientating difficulties of dementia.   The Father focuses on Anthony (Anthony Hopkins), who lives at home and is attended to by his daughter Anne (Olivia Colman,) and a carer. However, Anthony is struggling with his on-going dementia. As his symptoms worsen, it puts a huge strain on his relationship with Anne and his understanding of the reality around him.

**** “It’ll stay with you, for longer than you might like. I know it will stay with me.”  – Benjamin Lee, The Guardian
