The Father (12A)

Anthony Hopkins' Oscar-winning performance is compelling and captivating in Florian Zeller's powerful drama.

Anthony Hopkins plays the eponymous role of a mischievous and highly independent man who, as he ages, refuses all assistance from his daughter, Anne (Olivia Colman).

However, following Anne’s decision to move to Paris with her partner, her father is in need of the help he refuses. As he tries to make sense of his changing circumstances, he begins to doubt his loved ones, his own mind and even the fabric of his reality.

With an exceptional supporting cast, including Olivia Williams, Mark Gatiss, Imogen Poots and Rufus Sewell, this drama brings phenomenal performances together with a BAFTA-winning screenplay, a perfect combination.

From 17 May (and unless guidance changes) six people or two households of any size can visit together as a group. Until guidance changes, we’ve created socially-distanced seating clusters. Please only sit directly beside someone from your household or support bubble, and avoid moving seats when you arrive, so we can keep a safe distance between you and other groups.
