Directed by Florian Zeller
Hugh Jackman, Zane McGrath, Vanessa Kirby, Laura Dern, Anthony Hopkins
A couple of years ago, Florian Zeller premiered “Father” with the brilliant Anthony Hopkins in the title role – a brutally true film about a man who plunges into the abyss of Alzheimer’s disease and begins to live in his own world. And about the struggle of a daughter who feels responsible for her father, but also has only one life. Now he’s showing The Son, which he made from a screenplay he co-wrote with Christopher Hampton based on his own play. Again, talk about a life where mental incapacitation creeps in. depression this time. In the film, the titular son is groped. The boy lives with his mother, and the father has a new family, but he loves and takes care of his firstborn. The parents and even the stepmother do what they can to help the boy. Nicholas himself is also trying to get out of the abyss, to remember the feeling of happiness. But after all, they will all be seized with a terrible feeling of helplessness.
Hugh Jackman gives an excellent performance as the father Laura Dern plays the mother full of anxiety, grief and helplessness. Zen McGrath is fine as Nicholas, and Anthony Hopkins plays a great role as Nicholas’ selfish and ruthless grandfather.
“Son” is a difficult, but great and very important film at a time when, according to scientists, a third of humanity has problems with itself.
I love my dad
Directed by James Morosini
Performers: Patton Oswalt, James Morosini, Claudia Sulewski
Young actor James Morosini reportedly based his directorial debut on his own story, though it is – as he says – quite blunt. “Frankie, I’m sorry this trip to the Bahamas didn’t happen. I love you!” “I wasn’t really lying at the time. I got sick.” “Hey Frankie, I just wanted to let you know that I won’t be able to make it to my graduation.” The phrase “I love my father” begins with such invitations. The film’s protagonist, Frankie, finally cuts off contact with his father, even cutting him off from his online account. That’s when a father realizes how important his son is to him and how much he has lost. He hacks into the account of a pretty girl, a barmaid who he met during one of his travels, and starts talking to his son. But the director does not bore the viewers with subsequent posts. As the romance begins to blossom, the girl from the bar appears – like a figment of imagination – on screen with Frankie. However, this knowledge does not actually exist.
However, Morosini does not make romantic comedies. “I Love My Father” is a story about the relationship between a father and a son. And about the closeness that is so easy to lose and so important. You don’t have to prepare yourself much after I Love My Dad, but the movie is fun and heartwarming, and in the end, a fun two-hour getaway is your thing, too.
Directors: Scott Beck, Brian Woods
Performers: Adam Driver, Ariana Greenblatt
There’s a reason why this movie has been sitting on the shelf for two years, waiting for its premiere. Perhaps “65” was supposed to compete with Steven Spielberg’s Dinosaurs, but — well, it just didn’t work out. The score was pretty boring, despite the budget approaching $100 million and Adam Driver in the lead role.
Scott Beck’s Bryan Woods movie begins as a family drama. Pilot Mills is spending his final sweet moments with his wife and daughter, and soon he’ll be flying on a two-year mission. And also because he will receive a triple fee for this trip, and he wants to earn money for the treatment of his sick daughter. However, disaster strikes during the flight. The plane crashes on an unknown alien planet. It turned out to be Earth, but 65 million years ago. The pilot survived, and as it turns out, he is not alone. The little girl Koa, who lost her parents and does not speak the same language as Mills, also survived the accident. With her, the man tries to reach the part of the crashed spaceship that can take him home. But apart from the outcasts, there are also indigenous people of this world – huge and dangerous dinosaurs.
Adam Driver, the great hero in Jim Gamush’s Patterson or Marriage Story and White Noise, has recently appeared in commercial cinema, for example in the Star Wars series. Among the dinosaurs, he also offends in a way, especially since his young partner, Ariana Greenblatt, who plays Koa, is full of energy and charm. But all in all, dinosaurs don’t surprise anything, Peck & Woods’ movie is mercilessly long and after the lights come on in the cinema it’s hard to believe it only lasted “an hour and a half”.
