It’s no surprise that Anthony Hopkins won an Oscar for his role in The Father since his performance in this highly praised stage-to-screen melodrama is pure Oscar-bait: showy, wordy and worthy.

Hopkins plays Anthony, father of doting daughter Anne (Olivia Colman), who is struggling to manage her dad’s dementia. When we first meet Anthony, he has just seen off a carer, suspecting her of stealing his watch, which is the subject of a fretful, forgetful obsession. Anthony also accuses Anne of wanting to get him out of his flat, so that she can take it for herself. But as he moves from room to room, it gradually becomes clear that past, present and future are colliding, that events from different periods of Anthony’s life, in different settings, are coexisting within his immediate experience of the “present”.

Adapted from director Florian Zeller’s award-winning source play Le Père, The Father highlights the claustrophobia and “mystery” of Anthony’s first-person world, trapping him within labyrinthine rooms and corridors. Huge plaudits are due to production designer Peter Francis, whose subtly reconfigured sets disorient the viewer, matching Anthony’s increasingly bewildered experience.

“Hopkins gives one of the strongest performances in his storied career”The Ringer
