A man refuses all assistance from his daughter as he ages. As he tries to make sense of his changing circumstances, he begins to doubt his loved ones, his own mind, and even the fabric of his reality. – Synopsis vis Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

THE FATHER is directed by Florian Zeller in his debut feature-length film. It is based on the play, Le Père, which was also written by Zeller. The film won Best Adapted Screenplay and Anthony Hopkins won Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role. The film is honest and tells a story that isn’t farfetched for many families who have a sick, older relative.

The video is a 1080p AVC presentation that can be simply put as clean. This has to do with set design and production in general. The film has been captured digitally and this adds to the sleek look in the images. Colors are somehow bold and muted at the same time. The soft blues and earthy tones are beautifully displayed onscreen. The cinematographer loves shadows and creating shots with natural-looking lighting. The blacks are dark and create some solid contrast. In contrast to that, the whites are crisp and bright. There are a lot of tight shots of the characters and facial details are clear to see. Textures and designs on fabrics are incredibly clean. Skin tones are warm and natural.
