The father movie info : The Father (2020 film)

Anthony (Academy Award Winner, Anthony Hopkins) is 80, mischievous, living defiantly alone and terminating the careers that his daughter, Anne (Academy Award and Golden Globe Winner, Olivia Colman), encouragingly refers. Yet help is also flattering a necessity for Anne; she can’t make daily visits anymore and Anthony’s grip on reality is unraveling. As we practice 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 accepts real life, through loving reflection upon the vibrant human condition; heart-breaking and uncompromisingly poignant — a movie that nestles in the truth of our own lives.
