The Son: The official plot and the Italian trailer of the film
The Son tells the story of a family, or rather the one that once was. Peter, the father, is a successful New York businessman, who after his divorce from his wife Kate has rebuilt his life with Beth (Vanessa Kirby) with whom she recently had a baby. But his seventeen-year-old son, Nicholas (Zen McGrath) finds himself in a situation of great discomfort, no longer goes to school, is unable to communicate with his mother and asks to go and live with his father and his new family. Peter tries to be a fatherly presence to his son and to behave as he would have wanted his father to do with him, but at the same time he has to manage his busy life, which includes, in addition to his family, also the possibility of a brilliant political career in Washington. While trying to make up for the mistakes of the past, the man loses sight of what is his son’s present, and the situation becomes more and more difficult.
