Poster for The Whale

The Whale

Nominated for three Academy Awards® including Best Actor for Brendan Fraser

From Academy Award nominee Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream) comes The Whale, the story of a reclusive English teacher (Brendan Fraser) who attempts to reconnect with his estranged teenage daughter (Sadie Sink).

"What it boasts in abundance — in this riveting study of a deeply broken man, suffocated by nine years of self-immolation — is a rare and deep compassion, elevated by Fraser’s starring turn."
Jack King, The Playlist
"Once everything finally collides in The Whale, something shattering and beautiful and honest emerges."
Bilge Ebiri, Vulture
