“The Son” features an all-star ensemble cast including Academy Award nominees Hugh Jackman and Vanessa Kirby and Academy Award winners Laura Dern and Anthony Hopkins, along with Zen McGrath. Hugh Jackman earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for his performance in the film.

“The Son” is a cautionary tale that follows a family as it struggles to reunite after falling apart.

The film centers on Peter (Hugh Jackman), whose hectic life with his infant and new partner Beth (Vanessa Kirby) is upended when his ex-wife Kate (Laura Dern) appears at his door to discuss their son Nicholas (Zen McGrath), who is now a teenager. The young man has been missing school for months and is deeply troubled.

Peter strives to take care of Nicholas as he would have wanted his own father (Anthony Hopkins) to have taken care of him while juggling his and Beth's new son, and at work an offer of a 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.
