Have a look through our events below
You are warmly invited to attend our next film evening on Friday 24 June, The Father (run time 1 hour 37 minutes). The Father is a film about grief and what it means to grieve for someone who is still alive. Anthony, played by Antony Hopkins, the oldest actor in history to receive an Oscar for best actor in a film, is a roguishly handsome and cantankerous old widower, a retired engineer who lives alone in an apartment in west London. He receives regular visits from his affectionate and exasperated daughter, Anne, who is played with intelligence and insight by Olivia Colman. Director, Florian Zeller, gives us an unsettling glimpse into the mind and experience of someone slipping into dementia. The film explores the effects of Anthony’s declining mental state on the relationships with his daughter, son, and carer. Themes of how we deal with this special kind of loss, love between parents and children, protracted grief, change and adaptation to change, interweave throughout this powerful film.
