Cineworld Unlimited members praise The Father as a powerful experience

Planning on watching Anthony Hopkins' deeply moving performance in The Father? We've rounded up some reactions from Cineworld Unlimited members who got to see the film last night during our advance screening.

Hopkins won his second Oscar for his performance as Anthony, an ailing man suffering from onset dementia. As Anthony begins to lose his grip on reality, he imagines that his beloved London flat is constantly changing around him. Even more disconcertingly, he perceives his loyal and concerned daughter Hannah (The Favourite's Olivia Colman) as a succession of different people.

Florian Zeller taps into universal truths surrounding ageing and loss in this majestic adaptation of his own stage play. Unlimited members say the movie is a harrowing but fulfilling and compassionate experience, in large part down to the skill of the central performances.

 

The Father opens in Cineworld cinemas on the 11th of June. Don't want to miss out on the latest preview screenings? Sign up to Cineworld Unlimited and start enjoying them. Click here for a full list of upcoming Cineworld Unlimited screenings.
