Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Coleman excel in Florian Zeller's screen adaptation of his 2012 award-winning stage play. Curmudgeonly 81-year-old Anthony lives ostensibly alone in his London flat, visited by his daughter Anne, and fighting off the carers she tries to impose upon him. But all is not as it seems as we enter the fragmented consiousness of a man in the grip of dementia in which familiar people and places shape-shift and merge into one another. With a screenplay co-written by Christopher Hampton, and a magnificent Oscar-winning performance by Hopkins that veers between righteous outrage and extreme vulnerability, this is a moving but unflinching take on ageing.
