The Son


Adapted by Florian Zeller and Academy Award® winner Christopher Hampton (The Father, Dangerous Liaisons, Atonement), from Zeller’s acclaimed stage play, Academy Award® nominee Hugh Jackman (The Greatest Showman, X-Men, Les Misérables) stars as Peter whose busy life with his new partner is thrown into disarray when his ex-wife Kate, played by Academy Award® winner Laura Dern (Marriage Story, Little Women, Jurassic World) shows up with their teenage son, Nicholas. The young man is troubled, distant and angry, playing truant from school for months. Peter strives to be a better father, searching to help his son with those intimate and instinctive moments of family happiness. But the weight of Nicholas’ condition sets the family on a dangerous collision course.

Oscar winners Iain Canning and Emile Sherman (The King’s Speech, Lion), and Joanna Laurie of See-Saw Films produce with Christophe Spadone (The Father) alongside Zeller.
