A brand new Florian Zeller film is on its way. After the worldwide hit with the movie The Father with Anthony Hopkins, Olivia Colman and more, Florian is back with another movie titled The Son.
This film will have many stars featuring, such as Hugh Jackman and Laura Dern in the lead roles. Zeller will also be working alongside Christopher Hampton for the movie.
In this movie, Peter the main character played by Hugh Jackman has a busy life with Emma, his new partner and their baby. But their life is going to be turned upside down when his ex-wife Kate, who is played by Laura Dern turns up with their teenage son, Nicholas.
Nicholas has a strange attitude straight away, being angry, distant, he needs help from his parents. For that Nicholas is going to live with his father for a bit. Peter will try his best to be a better father, with understanding of what Nicholas is going through, but with Nicholas around, it will bring family problems. They will do everything they can to stay a family.
The Son is a human story and very realistic for so many families. And as Zeller describes: “I hope audiences will be profoundly moved by this family’s journey. Both Hugh and Laura naturally convey great warmth. […] The story is set in a vibrant and very much alive New York, an important character. The movie should make us call family and friends to tell them that they are wholly loved and not alone“.
We do not have a precise release date, or any trailer as supposedly the movie is still in production but it should be, with all the information we have, a great and simple movie that will all make us reflect on our own families.
