Falling

Available to rent for $9.99
February 5 - March 5
Directed by Viggo Mortensen
2020, Canada/UK/Denmark, 112 min

This title is available to rent via Cinematheque at Home for $9.99. This is not only an opportunity for our patrons to see new cinema, but is an important way that they can continue to support independent film during this pandemic with 50% of all sales supporting our theatre.

Lance Henriksen (Aliens, The Right Stuff) gives a masterful performance in his mesmerizing portrayal of an angry abusive father in Viggo Mortensen’s feature debut Falling. John (Viggo Mortensen) lives with his partner, Eric (Terry Chen), and their daughter, Monica (Gabby Velis), in California, far from the traditional rural life he left behind years ago. His father, Willis (Lance Henriksen), a headstrong man from a bygone era, lives alone on the isolated farm where John grew up. Willis’s mind is declining, so John brings him west, hoping he and his sister, Sarah (Laura Linney), can help their father find a home closer to them. Their best intentions ultimately run up against Willis’s angry refusal to change his way of life in any way. Willis’s abrasive nature, by turns caustic and funny, is aggravated by memory loss, bringing past and present into conflict.

Reviews

Unforgettable.
- Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail
A gem of a film...Hendriksen will rip your heart out.
- April Neale, Alliance of Women Film Jouralists.
A beautifully controlled drama about age, memory and forgiveness.
- The Wrap.
