At 80 years old, Anthony (Anthony Hopkins) finds himself dependent on his daughter Anne (Olivia Colman) for everything. Anne, however, is not planning on staying to take care of him as she wants to move to Paris to be with her boyfriend. Before she does, though, she wants to make sure that her father has someone who will look after him. Anthony detests this and tries his best to scare everyone Anne hires. But soon enough, his brain begins to play tricks on him. Directed by Florian Zeller.~Jinko Labitag
Having had a member of my family suffer from dementia, and knowing a fair number of other people who likewise have had their mental capacities diminish, this film touched me deeply. It is confusing -- and is meant to be. Stick with it. You experience "reality" as does the central character, Anthony (played magnificently by Anthony Hopkins). The love of Anne (played by Olivia Coleman) for her father and the way she suffers along with him truly hits home.
its hard to go through this movie and talk about it sine this is a case more and more common as the years pass.
pretty much the dad is starting to forget things and people around him, as the movie progresses it gets worse and worse. thats pretty much it
we see it from his point of view as his mind just starts fading away.
pretty sad but great movie
I knew Anthony Hopkins was a master class actor, obviously. But, his work in "The Father," was so engrossing, heartbreaking, and just tragically real. This is a tough one to sit through, but it really was worth it. He deserved that Academy Award he earned for this, in case you were wondering.
It was a good movie; but you need to follow it very closely, if not it will lose you along the way. The acting was solid and the plot was okay. It's one of those movies you will need to watch twice to see it true value.
This movie is incredible. I will admit I was confused through most of it, but near the end .... ❤️ Both Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Coleman did SUPERB!!! It’s no surprise that Anthony won the Oscar for this movie.
It was heart wrenching but definitely a must see!
