The Father= 9.5/10 A searing gut punch that shows the absolute universal unfairness of growing older. The struggle to hold on to who we are. Sir Anthony proves once again why he is the greatest actor of the last 50+ years. Astounding Perfection!
You felt like you were the characters in the movie - experiencing everything feeling and emotion they experienced. Truly and excellent film and acting.
The chance to see the 83-year-old Hopkins in a role that forces him to confront the tragic fact of human mortality, and his own eventual demise, with such rigor, curiosity, and vulnerability would have been reason enough to send audiences to see The Father, even if we weren’t also witnessing the birth of a major film director in Florian Zeller.
The best film about the wages of aging since Amour eight years ago, The Father takes a bracingly insightful, subtle and nuanced look at encroaching dementia and the toll it takes on those in close proximity to the afflicted.
On the whole, The Father incorporates what could have just been a storytelling gimmick and infuses it with such sorrow, grace and even the occasional dark joke that it becomes a profound exploration of how we say goodbye to someone dear to us — even though they have not yet really gone.
