The Father (2020)

A heartbreaking story told so wonderfully, that you end up questioning your own grip on reality.

Anthony Hopkins is superlative in his role as a man who is forgetting not only his relations, but time, space, traumas and memories. Olivia Colman plays his daughter, in who’s eyes and face we see the steady decline of her beloved father.

The movie is based on a critically acclaimed play ‘La Pere’ by Florian Zeller, who has also directed the film.

A story that slowly weaves its world and leaves you utterly helpless as you try and navigate the father’s point of view and life, it is as poignant as it is magnificent.
