John (Mortensen) lives with his partner, Eric (Chen), and their daughter, Monica (Gabby Velis), in California, far from the traditional rural life he left behind years ago. His father, Willis (Henriksen), a headstrong man from a bygone era, lives alone on the isolated farm where John grew up. Willis’s mind is declining, so John brings him west, hoping he and his sister, Sarah (Linney), can help their father find a home closer to them. Their best intentions ultimately run up against Willis’s angry refusal to change his way of life in any way. In his directorial debut, Mortensen explores the fractures and contrasts of a contemporary family. Willis’s abrasive nature, by turns caustic and funny, is aggravated by memory loss, bringing past and present into conflict.


John Peterson vit avec son conjoint Eric et leur fille adoptive Monica à Los Angeles, bien loin du milieu rural qu’il a quitté il y a bien des années. Son père, Willis, un conservateur et homophobe buté issu d’une époque révolue, vit seul sur la ferme où John a grandi. Il perd peu à peu la mémoire et la raison. John l’amène donc en ville en espérant que sa sœur Sarah et lui puissent lui trouver un foyer près de chez eux. Malgré toutes les bonnes intentions de ses enfants, Willis s’entête et refuse de changer quoi que ce soit à son mode de vie. Falling explore à travers la relation conflictuelle entre un fils et son père les fractures qui façonnent la vie moderne. Il s’agit du premier long métrage de l’acteur Viggo Mortensen à titre de réalisateur.
