Anthony Hopkins, Olivia Colman, Imogen Poots
The depths of dementia are tenderly interrogated in Florian Zeller's directorial debut. Adapted from Zeller's 2012 play, the film follows Anthony Hopkins as an 80-year-old patriarch, trapped in a puzzle box in which time and memory slip past his control. His daughter, Anne (Olivia Colman), seems his only remaining family, although her form, along with others in his life, is prone to shifting. Zeller cleverly balances the tension created by the disease with moments of heartbreak, and the Academy Award/BAFTA-winning Hopkins toggles between the two with purpose and energy. This film is as disorientating as it is devastating with compassionate storytelling that handles dementia with the honesty it deserves.
