Sony Pictures has released the first teaser trailer for the upcoming film The Son, which is the follow-up to the Oscar-winning film The Father from French filmmaker Florian Zeller. This is a heavy family drama that has a great cast of talent that includes Hugh Jackman, Laura Dern, Vanessa Kirby, Zen McGrath, Hugh Quarshie, and Anthony Hopkins.
The story follows “a family as it struggles to reunite after falling apart. The Son centers on Peter, whose hectic life with his infant and new partner Beth is upended when his ex-wife Kate appears with their son Nicholas, who is now a teenager. The young man has been missing from school for months and is troubled, distant, and angry. Peter strives to take care of Nicholas as he would have liked his own father to have taken care of him while juggling work, his and Beth’s new son, and the offer of his dream position in Washington. However, by reaching for the past to correct its mistakes, he loses sight of how to hold onto Nicholas in the present.”
The Son is set to premiere at the 2022 Venice Film Festival this month. It will be released in select theaters on November 11th, 2022.
