"Anthony Hopkins is unforgettable. A towering piece of acting that is as precise and exacting as it is enveloping." —Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair
Anthony (Anthony Hopkins) is 80, mischievous, living defiantly alone and rejecting the caretakers that his daughter, Anne (Olivia Colman), 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? The Father warmly embraces real life, through loving reflection upon the vibrant human condition; it is a heart-breaking and uncompromisingly poignant movie that nestles in the truth of our own lives.
The Father won 2 Academy Awards: Best Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay.
