When was the last time you sat with your father on the couch to watch a movie while popping some popcorn?If you’re looking to do something of this sort, we suggest you watch this beautiful movie ‘The Father’ with your father. Apart from some unintentional wordplay, this movie has a lot more to offer and can be a good watch this father’s day.
It is directed by Florian Zeller and has an ensemble cast of Anthony Hopkins, Olivia Colman, Mark Gatiss, Imogen Poots, Rufus Sewell, and Olivia Williams. Anthony Hopkins won the Academy award for the Best Actor for this movie. Christopher Hampton won the academy award for best-adapted screenplay for this,
The movie starts with the discussion between the father and his daughter Anne. The first scene opens with Anne coming around to meet her acutely aged father, Anthony. The conversation leads to Anne telling her father to let the carer take care of him, else a nursing home is standing by... after which Anthony watches from the window as she leaves, and afterward takes a couple of steps back prior to dropping to his bed. A note of distress creeps up all over, his eyes hang in despair as he closes his eyes and lets out a short-full breath.
In the beginning, it will be quite difficult to understand what's going on in the movie because of the screen changes. However, after spending a few minutes into it, you will get the grip. With minimal locations and few set changes and understated performance from Anthony Hopkins, The Father begins gently.
In the movie, Anthony likes to monitor the time simultaneously. Sometimes, he misses his younger daughter Lucy who died, and the caretaker Lora in the one scene he saw her with her husband and Anthony likes his caretaker because she looks like his younger daughter.
Anne is the less preferred daughter of two who feels an ethical commitment to really focus on her weak dad. That his illness isn't quickly evident, his disdain seldom held within proper limits and it's going with hatred for her better half Paul conspicuously neglects to improve the situation.
The Father centers on the relationship between a father and daughter. The story generally concerns the ways in which the parent-child dynamic changes over time. The movie works best without knowing much about its plot.
There could be "something amusing going on" when Anthony discovers that his "leaves" are beginning to shrivel. A very emotional moment of the movie when Anthony carved for his mother, the difficult scene states the two terrible and significant things about progressive dementia.
From the movie, you realise that you just can't reveal toAnthony that this will be okay... since this is reality, and with reality, there is no chance of fixing things. It summons misery out of you; it is the lone thing Anthony too appears to possibly be ready to feel. However, you know, very soon, even that feeling will get away from him.
