Anthony (Anthony Hopkins) is 80, mischievous, living defiantly alone and rejecting the carers that his daughter, Anne (Olivia Colman), encouragingly introduces. Yet help is also becoming a necessity for Anne; she can’t make daily visits anymore and Anthony’s grip on reality is unravelling. As we experience the ebb and flow of his memory, how much of his own identity and past can Anthony cling to? How does Anne cope as she grieves the loss of her father, while he still lives and breathes before her? The Father warmly embraces real life, through loving reflection upon the vibrant human condition; heart-breaking and uncompromisingly poignant – a movie that nestles in the truth of our own lives.
Please note: all screenings on Thursdays will be captioned.
Towner Cinema Safety Procedures
For screenings after 19 July we will operate with a reduced capacity of 50 seats out of a possible 84. This will generally allow for one vacant space between audience groups.
We will also continue to strongly encourage the wearing of masks during our screenings (unless exempt) and request that no food or drink is consumed within the cinema.
