Modern Films have debuted a new trailer for Viggo Mortensen’s personal drama ‘Falling’.
John Petersen (Viggo Mortensen) lives with his partner Eric (Terry Chen) and their adopted daughter Monica in Southern California. His father Willis (Lance Henriksen/Sverrir Gudnason) is a farmer whose attitudes and behaviour belong to a far more traditional era and family model. When Willis travels to Los Angeles for an indefinite stay with John’s family in order to search for a place to retire, these two very different worlds collide.
As father and son confront the events that have torn them apart, their 40-year-relationship is explored from dark to light, from rage and jealousy through to acceptance, laughter, and hard-won grace.
Written and directed by Mortensen the story is rooted in his own upbringing and relationship with his parents, the film explores universal themes of loss, pain, and the need to connect, with a powerhouse performance by Henriksen at its core.
Laura Linney and Terry Chen also star.
