The Son

by Florian Zeller Gala Premieres

A few years after his parents' divorce, 17-year-old Nicholas no longer wants to live with his mother, Kate. Instead, he moves in with his father, Peter, and his new partner, Beth. The couple have just achieved perfect family bliss after the birth of their daughter. In addition to his family duties, Peter also has the chance to land his dream job in Washington. But his attempt to correct past mistakes with Nicholas threatens to put their father-and-son relationship under severe strain. After THE FATHER, director Florian Zeller presents his next magisterially staged and highly emotional family drama, bringing together in THE SON a cast of superlatives: In addition to Hugh Jackman, Oscar winners Laura Dern and Anthony Hopkins do the honours.
