Ahead of its release this February, a new trailer and poster have arrived online for the upcoming drama Falling. The film marks the directorial debut for Viggo Mortensen, who also stars in the film as John, a man who take in his headstrong father (Lance Henriksen) and finds their very different world collide while helping him look for a place to retire after he begins to struggle during the early stages of dementia; take a look here..
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 (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 sees Mortensen and Henriksen joined in the cast by Terry Chen, Gabby Velis, Sverrir Gudnason, Hannah Gross, Laura Linney and Bracken Burns.
Falling is set for release on February 5th.
