Anthony Hopkins is the clear favourite to win the Best Leading Actor award at the Oscars for this.

I watched this earlier today and WOW. Incredibly powerful, raw and emotional. I was expecting one of those dramas that was award-baity but for whatever reason didn't really "click" for me so I'd end up giving it a 2.5 or 3 out of 5 (on my Letterboxd) or something. But this was so much more than being a generic drama.

Anthony Hopkins... just as you think he couldn't possibly give yet another "career defining performance" and he does this!? Just magnificent. Olivia Colman is absolutely PERFECT in this too. I'm genuinely stunned at how much I loved this when I was expecting it to be just bland and generic... Highly recommend! Brilliant.

All I need is the air I breathe and a place to rest my head.

I really want to see this but didn't know it was out yet. Where did you watch it, Jonjo?
