Anthony is 80, mischievous, living defiantly alone and rejecting the carers that his daughter, Anne, encouragingly introduces. Yet help is also becoming a necessity for Anne; she can’t make daily visits anymore and Anthony’s grip on reality is unravelling. As we experience the ebb and flow of his memory, how much of his own identity and past can Anthony cling to? How does Anne cope as she grieves the loss of her father, while he still lives and breathes before her? THE FATHER warmly embraces real life, through loving reflection upon the vibrant human condition; heart-breaking and uncompromisingly poignant – a movie that nestles in the truth of our own lives.

Reviews:“Anthony Hopkins is stunning. Florian Zeller makes his auspicious debut as a feature-film director.”
– Owen Gleiberman, VARIETY

“Sharp and teasingly diabolical. A stupendous performance from Anthony Hopkins.”
– Todd McCarthy, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“Olivia Colman gives an affecting and tender performance.”
– Kevin Fallon, DAILY BEAST

“Entrancingly different – brought to life by a handful of brilliant performances and some very impressive sleight-of-hand.”
– David Ehrlich, INDIEWIRE

“Anthony Hopkins is unforgettable. A towering piece of acting that is as precise and exacting as it is enveloping.”
– Richard Lawson, VANITY FAIR

“Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman are astonishing.”
– Donny Sheldon, AWARDS WATCH

THE ENTERTAINER

Celebrating King’s Theatre’s Centennial Year is a special solo performance by renowned dancer Meredith Kalaman
 
What does a performer without an audience do? This has been the central theme of a work that was initially devised to reference the magic of past entertainers that have graced the stage. Now in a time when the entertainers role seems in question, yet more necessary than ever before, looking back to past entertainers who brought relief to their audiences through escapism and humor becomes a whole new exploration for the role of art as relief.
 
the sea of my tomorrows
A new work in progress graciously supported by the Dancing on the Edge Festivals Covid Commission Grant and the King’s Theatre. The sea of my tomorrows is a new contemporary dance piece created with dancers from the Pacific Coast and Atlantic Coast, taking its inspiration from these distant seascapes coming together to narrate an onerous journey across the water. This piece is ignited by the body’s capacity to hold and translate memories through water and the emotional and psychological role water plays in our lives.

Frances McDormand explores the vast landscape of the American West, in Chloé Zhao’s wise and intimate portrayal of life as a modern-day nomad.

The first few images of Frances McDormand as Fern establish the will of this woman straight away. She’s on her own, working itinerant jobs, hitting the road when it’s time to move on. “I’m not homeless,” she says to an inquiring friend’s daughter. “I’m just… houseless. Not the same thing.”

Fern drives her old RV up and down the highways of America’s West, following the seasons and seasonal jobs. When she discovers a community of like-minded nomads, her heart opens, but she’s cautious about forging bonds. One man she keeps running into (David Strathairn) looks like a perfect match, but what does Fern need with a boyfriend — or anyone, really.

Adapting Jessica Bruder’s non-fiction book, Chloé Zhao writes, directs, and edits with impressively crisp focus. The film gets into and out of every scene with rare economy, cutting to the heart of each moment in our growing understanding of Fern.

Nomadland arrives between Zhao’s award-winning prairie drama The Rider and her upcoming Marvel superhero movie, The Eternals. It’s yet more evidence of what makes her a singular filmmaker and one of the most important new voices in American cinema. Zhao seeks out characters living in the margins of society and on the periphery of movie heroism, and shows us why these seeming outcasts define America, and movies, more than the big-screen protagonists we’re used to. As we watch Fern eke out a living in precarious jobs, try and fail and try again to form relationships, and all against stunning expanses of desert and sky, it’s clear that we’re watching a portrait of America now.

Chekov’s UNCLE VANYA – Cancelled
May 16 @ 7:30 pm

CANCELLED DUE TO NEW PROVINCIAL COVID RESTRICTIONS

———————

Five Stars (Guaridan)

Toby Jones triumphs in perfect Chekhov

Ian Rickson directs Conor McPherson’s new adaptation of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya. Toby Jones stars as Uncle Vanya alongside Richard Armitage as Astrov.

In the heat of summer, Sonya (Aimee Lou Wood) and her Uncle Vanya (Toby Jones) while away their days on a crumbling estate deep in the countryside, visited occasionally by only the local doctor Astrov (Richard Armitage). However, when Sonya’s father Professor Serebryakov (Ciarán Hinds) suddenly returns with his restless, alluring, new wife (Rosalind Eleazar) declaring his intention to sell the house, the polite facades crumble and long repressed feelings start to emerge with devastating consequences.

Olivier Award-winner Conor McPherson’s stunning new adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s masterpiece, UNCLE VANYA, is a portrayal of life at the turn of the 20th century, full of tumultuous frustration, dark humour and hidden passions. Critically acclaimed director ‍Ian Rickson returns to Chekhov for the first time since his landmark production of The Seagull in 2007, reuniting with BAFTA and Olivier Award-winner Toby Jones (The Birthday Party) alongside Richard Armitage, who returns to the UK stage six years after his Olivier Award-nominated performance in The Crucible. UNCLE VANYA is designed by Rae Smith, with lighting by Bruno Poet, music by Stephen Warbeck, sound by Ian Dickinson and casting by Amy Ball CDG. Don’t miss this astonishing combination of creative talent as they breathe new life into the treasured Chekhov classic.
