ANGELIKA’S NOTE

"Florian Zeller makes his auspicious debut as a feature-film director” (Variety) with THE FATHER, a recipient of 4 Golden Globe nominations including Best Motion Picture - Drama, and an Official Selection of the Sundance, Telluride and Toronto International Film Festivals. Featuring towering performances from Oscar winners Anthony Hopkins (THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, HANNIBAL) and Olivia Colman (THE FAVOURITE, TYRANNOSAUR) - both of whom received Golden Globe nominations - THE FATHER warmly embraces real life, through loving reflection upon the vibrant human condition. Rated 100% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, Zeller's film is heartbreaking and uncompromisingly poignant – a movie that nestles in the truth of our own lives.

SYNOPSIS

Anthony is 80, mischievous, living defiantly alone and rejecting the care that his daughter, Anne, encouragingly introduces. Yet help is also becoming a necessity for Anne; she can’t make daily visits anymore and Anthony’s grip on reality is unravelling. As we experience the ebb and flow of his memory, how much of his own identity and past can Anthony cling to? How does Anne cope as she grieves the loss of her father, while he still lives and breathes before her?
