Review: Does The Father deserve its Oscar nods?

Plot

An elderly man with dementia finds his world shrinking around him and begins to mistrust everyone and everything around him.    

Acting

Remarkable performances by the cast make this story feel very real and very personal. Anthony Hopkins delivers a complex blend of emotions and actions to his role.  

9 out of 10 for acting. 

Plot/Script

The plot of this movie is deliberately confusing in order to mimic the effects of dementia. The audience is taken along the journey superbly.

8 out of 10 for story 

Cinematography

Shots and setups are fairly conventional but they look beautiful and make the action more convincing.   

8 out of 10 for cinematography 

Set/Costumes  

The filmmakers have created a number of different looks in each set to sow the confusion that comes with dementia. 

8 out of 10 for sets and costumes 

Entertainment 

This is a very well constructed film made from the protagonists point of view – it is engrossing, confusing, emotional and brilliant.
