The Whale

  •   Darren Aronofsky
  •   United States

From Oscar-nominated filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler, Black Swan) comes The Whale, the story of Charlie, a reclusive English teacher living with severe obesity who attempts to reconnect with his estranged teenage daughter (Sadie Sink) for one last chance at redemption. As Charlie, Brendan Fraser delivers a profoundly stirring, career-best performance, whose vulnerability shines through the 600 pounds that weighs him down throughout the film. Also featuring superb supporting turns by Hong Chau and Samantha Morton, The Whale is an intimate and captivating drama about sexuality and addiction, body and spirit, based on the acclaimed stage play by Samuel D. Hunter.
