Teignmouth Film Society Presents: The Father

16 February @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Teignmouth Film Society: ‘The Father’

‘Unsettling and moving – a heartbreaking tour de force by Anthony Hopkins’

An exceptional film, for which Hopkins deservedly won an Oscar for Best Actor and Olivia Colman, equally deservedly, an Oscar as Best Supporting Actor.

Hopkins plays a man gradually succumbing to dementia – at one moment, charming, clever and tender, the next spiteful, angry and frightened.

This clever and fascinating film constantly wrong-foots the viewer, with subtle switches of time and place and similar but different faces, so that we ourselves begin to feel the sort of confusion that someone suffering from dementia endures…

  • Doors open from 7 p.m. – comfortable bar and foyer; 
  • Film commences at 8 p.m; running time: 1 hour 37 minutes
  • Entry: £5 at the door; free parking: on-street or round the corner in Barton Hill Car Park, Barton Hill, Dawlish EX7 9QF
