Dern and Jackman star in the film with Vanessa Kirby and Zen McGrath, directed by Florian Zeller.

The Son is based on the 2018 play The Son of Zeller and acts as a prequel to the 2020 film The Father, which starred Olivia Colman and Sir Anthony Hopkins, who won the Best Actor Oscar for his performance.
