Film THE FATHER screened in the Open Air programme tonight
Florian Zeller's THE FATHER - Oscar® winner for Best Actor (Anthony Hopkins) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Christopher Hampton and Florian Zeller) was screened tonight at the Coca-Cola Open Air Cinema, as a part of the Open Air programme.
Anthony is 80, mischievous, living defiantly alone and rejecting the carers that his daughter, Anne, encouragingly introduces. Yet help is also becoming a necessity for Anne; she can’t make daily visits anymore and Anthony’s grip on reality is unravelling. As we experience 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?
You can watch the movie in one of the following showings.
