Heartbreaking Look at Dementia and Life

An absolute gut-punch of a film, if drama is your thing. Anthony Hopkins took home an Oscar for his turn as a man suffering from dementia in the last years of his life. This adaptation of Zeller's own play is fit with haunting detail in production design and writing. It puts the audience in the mind of Anthony as the world and sense altogether blurs across every possible line. 6 Oscar Nominations and 2 wins (Best Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay) behind it, this film will floor you from its very first frames.
