The Son Trailer Shows Another Heartfelt Family Drama Starring Hugh Jackman

The family drama is a staple of many films, but what makes it so popular? The answer is simple: it’s the relationship between parents and children. In this genre, we see characters struggle with their relationships with their parents, siblings, or other family members. 

This genre brings out the emotions that everyone experiences at one point in their lives: being a parent, sibling or parent-child relationship that we have had ourselves. The movie industry has used this concept for decades now to create some of the most beloved films ever made!

One of the popular examples includes Florian Zeller’s The Father where we saw a budding relationship between a father and a daughter set a such crisp example.

The film was a huge success and got Zeller,  Academy Awards for Best Adapted Screenplay together with Christopher Hampton.

Taking the franchise forward, Florian Zeller is bringing the highly anticipated The Son starring Hugh Jackman in a pivotal role. For The Son, Zeller adapted one of his own acclaimed plays for the screen with Hampton. Here’s everything you need to know.
