Provides a riveting portrait of a sundered marriage and the fallout from separation.
In "The Good Father," Bill(Anthony Hopkins) would really like to spend more time with his son, even after his divorce, but his lack of lodging(he actually sleeps a lot of the time at his office) makes that kind of hard for Emmy(Harriet Walter), his ex-wife, to sympathize. So, instead of looking for an apartment, he takes up the case of his new friend Roger(Jim Broadbent) and his currently dormant custody battle.
"The Good Father" is a damning and pointed look at masculinity run amok in Thatcherite England which was also a low point for the gay rights movement. Even though one might hope that some of the attitudes in the movie are dated, sadly that is not the case with so-called men's rights activists currently making the same kind of mess that Bill does in the film. And as Bill, Anthony Hopkins gives one of his best performances that is alternately angry, charming, creepy and somehow sympathetic. Plus, Simon Callow is having too much fun playing a lawyer.
