About The Son
Florian Zeller follows his Oscar-nominated film, The Father, with another emotional family drama.
Hugh Jackman plays Peter, a successful man whose life is turned upside down when his son Nicholas moves back in with him and his young family. As Nicholas’ behaviour becomes more disturbing, Peter reaches to the past to correct his mistakes, but in doing so loses sight of how to hold onto Nicholas in the present.
Dir: Florian Zeller
Cast: Hugh Jackman, Vanessa Kirby, Anthony Hopkins, Laura Dern, Zen McGrath
A powerful and literate film
