Is assistance needed, and if so – when? Do I need it, and or do you need it? Who gets to decide?
The film The Father asks and – ultimately – answers all of those questions for everyone involved. The Father possesses a brilliant cast led by Academy Award Winners Anthony Hopkins and Oliva Coleman. It was written/directed by Florian Zeller based on his award winning play of the same name.
One of the intriguing aspects of The Father is its efficiency and effectiveness in presenting a dilemma often associated with goings on of every day life, and placing you inside the person(s) experiencing it.
The over-arching storyline is one almost all of us experience as the giver and receiver of care.
