Everybody loves a good drama, especially when it comes to the big screen. And if there’s one thing that Hugh Jackman is known for, it’s his ability to deliver powerful performances. However, in recent years, the Australian actor has had a string of movies that didn’t quite hit the mark at the box office. Films like “The Candidate” (2018), “The Fraud” (2019), and “Reminiscence” (2021) failed to make a lasting impression. Now, all eyes are on his upcoming film, “The Son” (2023), directed by Florian Zeller, which is set to release in Spain very soon.
When Will “The Son” Hit The Screens in Spain?
Mark your calendars because “The Son” will be hitting theaters in Spain on Friday, March 3, 2023. The film had a limited release in the United States on January 20, 2023, but unfortunately, it only managed to gross $213,000 across 554 theaters, which is one of the lowest per-screen averages in recent memory.
Trailer and Synopsis of “The Son”
“The Son” is an adaptation of a play by Florian Zeller and tells the story of Peter and Emma, a couple whose lives are turned upside down when Peter’s ex-wife, Kate, reappears with their troubled teenage son, Nicholas. Nicholas is a difficult young man to communicate with, both aggressive and distant. Having just dropped out of school, he wreaks havoc on the entire family. This emotional drama explores the challenges they face as they navigate through this unexpected change.
Director and Cast of “The Son”
There were high expectations for “The Son” as Florian Zeller proved his talent with his previous film, “The Father” (2020), which received critical acclaim and earned six Oscar nominations and four Golden Globe nominations. Zeller has once again assembled an impressive cast for “The Son,” with Hugh Jackman, Laura Dern, Vanessa Kirby, and Anthony Hopkins taking the lead. Hopkins, who starred in Zeller’s “The Father,” reunites with the director for this new project.

Reviews of “The Son”
Reviews for “The Son” have been somewhat mixed. While Florian Zeller couldn’t quite replicate the success of “The Father,” which was hailed as a masterpiece, he still managed to impress some critics. IndieWire, for instance, praised the performances of the two leads but criticized the script, describing it as emotionally pornographic. The Hollywood Reporter was less enthusiastic, stating that the film’s predictability made it an exhausting effort, despite Zeller’s elegant direction. However, The Guardian had a more positive take, commending the film as a beautifully written drama with impeccable performances, particularly from Hugh Jackman.
