Nominated for six Academy Awards®: Best Picture, Best Actor (Anthony Hopkins), Best Supporting Actress (Olivia Colman), Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Film Editing and Best Production Design.


Anthony (Anthony Hopkins) is 80 and mischievous, living defiantly alone and rejecting the carers that his daughter, Anne (Olivia Colman), 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? THE FATHER warmly embraces real life, through loving reflection upon the vibrant human condition. Heartbreaking and uncompromisingly poignant, it is a movie that nestles in the truth of our own lives. Winner, Best Film, 2020 San Sebastián International Film Festival; Winner, Best Screenplay, Best Actor (Anthony Hopkins) and Best Editing, 2021 British Independent Film Awards; Winner, Best European Film, 2021 Goya Awards. Official Selection, 2020 Sundance, Toronto, AFI FEST and Tallinn Black Nights film festivals.
