Directed by Florian Zeller
Starring: Anthony Hopkins, Olivia Colman, Mark Gatiss, Olivia Williams, Imogen Poots, Rufus Sewell

Anthony Hopkins deservedly won the 2021 Best Actor BAFTA for his performance in this domestic drama that unfolds like a thriller.

Anthony (Anthony Hopkins) is 81 years old. He lives alone in his London apartment and refuses all of the nurses that his daughter, Anne (Olivia Coleman), tries to impose upon him. Yet such a necessity is becoming more and more pressing for her, as she can’t see him every day anymore: she has taken the decision to move to Paris to live with a man she has just met… But if that is the case, then who is this stranger who suddenly bursts into Anthony’s living room, claiming to be married to Anne for over ten years? And why is he claiming with such conviction that they are at the supposed married couple’s home, and not his?
