the father gft

11 – 24 June, 2021

Anthony (Anthony Hopkins) is 81 years old. He lives alone in his London apartment and refuses all of the nurses that his daughter, Anne (Olivia Coleman), tries to impose upon him. Yet such a necessity is becoming more and more pressing for her, as she can’t see him every day anymore: she has taken the decision to move to Paris to live with a man she has just met…

But if that is the case, then who is this stranger who suddenly bursts into Anthony’s living room, claiming to be married to Anne? And why is the man so convinced that Anthony’s home is his own? Is Anthony losing his mind? Perhaps his daughter, and her new companion, are trying to make him appear crazy? Is their objective to rob him of his apartment? Do they want to get rid of him? And where is Lucy, his other daughter?

Astray in a labyrinth of answerless questions, Anthony desperately attempts to understand what is going on around him. The Father is about the painful trajectory of a man whose reality crumbles little by little before our eyes and of a woman who must begin to parent her own father. Winner of two Oscars, including Best Actor for Hopkins’ masterful portrayal of a man unable to rely on his mind or his memories.
