Featuring a career-best, Academy Award-winning performance from Anthony Hopkins, The Father follows a man attempting to make sense of his changing circumstances, while simultaneously doubting his loved ones, his own mind and even the fabric of his reality.

Octogenarian Anthony lives alone in his London apartment and refuses the help of all of the nurses that his daughter, Anne (Olivia Colman), tries to impose upon him. When Anne suddenly announces she is moving to Paris with a man she just met, the combative Anthony must deal with a new reality, one which crumbles in front of his very eyes as he tries desperately to navigate a labyrinth of answerless questions in an attempt to understand what is going on around him.

Led by a tour-de-force performance from Hopkins, The Father is a meticulous look at dementia that is shocking, emotional and deeply sympathetic.
