'The Father' showtimes in London
Important Notice about Showtimes
After six years on the cinema scene, we’re sad to announce that WeLoveCinema will stop delivering showtimes and cease updating from Friday 4 August, 2023.
This wasn’t an easy decision, but we’re incredibly proud of what we achieved in that time, and are grateful for the experiences and opportunities that came our way.
This is an object lesson in how to bring a small-scale play to the screen, bolstered by a mesmerising performance from one of our greatest living actors.

Its effects are essentially theatrical – but they are powerfully achieved, and the performances from Hopkins and Colman are superb.
Placing us so squarely in the position of someone losing their mind makes The Father one of the most heartbreaking films in recent memory.
Little White Lie
With a role modified for the screen with Hopkins in mind, this direct adaptation offers a similarly arresting showcase for a veteran’s skillset.
