Greetings to all our readers. I am back with another new release of an exciting movie. We know that this chilly season has got you pining for new movies to watch with your friends and family. But alas, new movies have not hit the big screen for a long time because of the current pandemic. The Father of all joys is here! (A pun a day keeps the sadness away).
We are also aware that this year has been a huge bust worldwide for you movie buffs. 2020 was predicted to be a huge winner for the movie industry and superhero comic fans; Disappointed much? Many sci-fi thrillers were supposed to be released this year, along with a few superhero and horror movies. But we can agree that all of us had high expectations from the movie industry in 2020, but because of the government’s quarantine, the release of major movies has been postponed.
The Father: A Brief Introduction, Storyline, and Opinions
I think most of the production houses preferred to wait for the new year to release their blockbuster films. You all were thrilled to have a fitting holiday movie finally! Sony Pictures Classic had at first decided that this star-studded movie world be released on 18th December 2020. Now they have set a new release date for this much-awaited movie. Many fans, along with critics, have been looking forward to this movie because of its exceptional cast. The Father will have The Crown star Olivia Coleman and the Silence of the Lambs star Anthony Hopkins.
Florian Zeller has directed The Father. The exciting thing is that it is based on his play La Père, way back in 2012. It is about a daughter taking care of her aging father who has dementia—ever heard of this disease? It makes a person lose parts of their memory.
The movie is mainly focused on their relationship and his struggle to accept his present frail condition. Often, when people lose their memory, it is very difficult for them to have company. In a recent interview, Anthony Hopkins has praised Olivia Coleman’s acting skills, saying that one does not need to act alongside such a phenomenal actor.
Fans and critics have been saying that ‘The Father’ might be Anthony Hopkins’ one of the finest to present date. You can watch the trailer right here! Let us know what you derive from this.
