The Father

What's it about?

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.

Why do we love it?

Masterfully misdirecting the audience at every turn, The Father accentuates confusion and isolation subtly shifting small details without you noticing until it's too late.
