Directed by: Florian Zeller  |  Starring: Hugh Jackman, Laura Dern, Vanessa Kirby, Zen McGrath, and Anthony Hopkins

A drama that follows a family as it struggles to reunite after falling apart. THE SON centers on Peter (Jackman), whose hectic life with his infant and new partner Beth (Kirby) is upended when his ex-wife Kate (Dern) appears with their son Nicholas (McGrath), who is now a teenager. The young man has been missing from school for months and is troubled, distant, and angry. Peter strives to take care of Nicholas as he would have liked his own father to have taken care of him while juggling work, his and Beth's new son, and the offer of his dream position in Washington. However, by reaching for the past to correct its mistakes, he loses sight of how to hold onto the Nicholas in the present.

A writer-director of rare insight and compassion, Florian Zeller presents such delicate relationships and heartrending decisions, crafting a family story that is idiosyncratic in its detail, but universal in its themes. Tender, but uncompromising, THE SON confronts the hardest questions that parents address in the face of a child’s mental illness. This is a story set to resonate with anyone who has struggled to connect with others or fought to make a family come together.
