Anthony (Academy Award Winner, Anthony Hopkins) is 80, mischievous, living defiantly alone and rejecting the care that his daughter, Anne (Academy Award and Golden Globe Winner, Olivia Colman), encouragingly introduces. The Father warmly embraces 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.
“Anthony Hopkins gives a scalding performance as a man stricken by dementia in this clever drama.” — Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
“…a film about grief and what it means to grieve for someone who is still alive.” — Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
