Critic Reviews for The Father
It's a tough watch but a structurally powerful piece of storytelling with a powerhouse performance at its center, matched by a supporting ensemble that doesn't have a weak link.
Over the course of 97 increasingly grim minutes, Zeller's puzzle-box drama distills the abstract concept of senility into an ontological experience that denies your sympathy at almost every turn.
[It] was written specifically with Hopkins in mind, right down to Anthony's birthdate, and the actor offers the perfect blend of vulnerability and recalcitrance in the role.
The Father takes a bracingly insightful, subtle and nuanced look at encroaching dementia and the toll it takes on those in close proximity to the afflicted.
All the actors in "The Father" are vivid (Colman brings her role a loving vulnerability that warms you), but Hopkins is flat-out stunning.
