ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Viggo Mortensen (CAPTAIN FANTASTIC, THE LORD OF THE RINGS) makes his directorial debut with FALLING, a San Sebastián International Film Festival Best Film winner, and an Official Selection of the Sundance and Toronto International Film Festivals. Mortensen writes, and stars, alongside an all-star cast including Lance Henriksen, Laura Linney and Hannah Gross. This complex and deeply human film is "a beautifully controlled drama about age, memory and forgiveness" (The Wrap). Variety raves, "Mortensen's patience, his way with actors and his trust in our intelligence are not unlike late-career Eastwood, which isn't a bad place to be so early in one's directing career."
