The Father (Featuring Robert Yaniz Jr.)

by | Mar 26, 2021 | 0 comments

On the 176th episode of Piecing It Together, Robert Yaniz Jr. joins me to talk about the heartbreaking puzzle box that is Florian Zeller’s The Father. Featuring an Academy-Award nominated performance by Anthony Hopkins, it’s a stunning and disorienting portrait of dementia that places you in the shoes of its protagonist. Puzzle pieces include Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Memento, mother! and Relic.

As always, SPOILER ALERT for The Father and the movies we discuss!

Director – Florian Zeller

Writer – Florian Zeller and Christopher Hampton
