An impressive directorial debut from Viggo Mortensen and the role of a lifetime from Lance Henriksen

Lance Henriksen delivers what may be the greatest acting performance of his career in Viggo Mortensen’s directorial debut FALLING. Henriksen plays Willis, an aging and rabidly homophobic cowboy who moves in with his gay son (Mortensen) and his partner when he starts displaying signs of dementia. As the turbulent story of father and son is fleshed out in flashbacks, Mortensen crafts a wise and deeply personal family drama filled with sharp observations, nuanced characters and infuriatingly relatable moments.
