The Son

Florian Zeller returns after his exacting, devastating drama The Father, with another emotionally-turbulent story of familial conflict. Collaborating with British screenwriter Christopher Hampton and produced by the UK’s See-Saw Films, this intelligent, impeccably-acted story - featuring a standout performance from Brit Vanessa Kirby - is a simmering pot of resentment and guilt.





Successful lawyer Peter (Hugh Jackman) finds his familial bliss with partner Beth (Vanessa Kirby) and infant son interrupted when his ex-wife Kate (Laura Dern) shows up fearing that their teenage son Nicholas is going off the rails. In attempting to be a better father, he must confront his own relationships and where he might have failed them.
