The first trailer for Falling has been released. The film will be Viggo Mortensen‘s directorial debut.
This does not look too bad. Apparently, the film was inspired by Mortensen’s own experiences growing up with his father and how he learned to accept who his father was. That makes me slightly more interested in the project.
John (Viggo Mortensen) lives with his partner, Eric (Terry Chen), and their daughter, Mónica (Gabby Velis), in California, far from the traditional rural life he left behind years ago. John’s father, Willis (Lance Henriksen), a headstrong man from a bygone era, lives alone on the isolated farm where John grew up. Willis is in the early stages of dementia, making running the farm on his own increasingly difficult, so John brings him to stay at his California home so that he and his sister Sarah (Laura Linney) might help him find a place near them to relocate to. Unfortunately, their best intentions ultimately run up against Willis’s adamant refusal to change his way of life in the slightest.
Falling hits theaters, Digital and On Demand February 5, 2021.
