If you haven’t seen The Father yet, you’re not alone. Most people were surprised when the film first premiered, and most were blown away by the film’s powerful performance. If you’d like to see the film, you can watch it on the web, though it’s not available on Netflix.
Anthony Hopkins’ Oscar-winning performance
In “The Father,” Anthony Hopkins plays a man suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. The Oscar-winning actor is also a playwright; his performance is emotionally raw and compelling. In a play that inspired this film, Hopkins played a character named Andre. In the film, his character, a man with dementia, struggles to cope with the situation as his caretaker tries to get him to trust her again. At times, his actions seem to defy logic, and he feels like a victim of his confusion.
Despite being an accomplished actor, Hopkins’ role in “The Father” was never a sure thing. He often felt nervous and unsure of himself before a role. Then he met Michael Caine, who had a role in the film. The two had previously worked on many projects, and Olivier taught Hopkins how to conquer his fears and remain confident during performances.
