‘The Whale’ – the father’s last will

Trailer for the movie `The Whale`.

The film was directed by Darren Aronofsky, adapted from the play of the same name by Samuel D. Hunter.

The Whale is about a gay man, Charlie, who is going through his final days of life with obesity.

Most of the film’s scenes focus on Charlie’s motel room, where he teaches English online to college students.

Inferiority about his appearance, combined with many incidents in the past, has made Charlie no longer have the courage to open up to strangers.

The content of the movie `The Whale` revolves around the last days of Charlie’s life (played by Brendan Fraser).

When facing her father after many years, Ellie was dissatisfied and had difficulty accepting the way Charlie was close to her.

The knot is resolved in the scenes near the end of the film, when Charlie is about to die.

The film’s name not only reminds viewers of the loneliness and oversized appearance of the main character, but also refers to Ellie’s essay.

Brendan Fraser’s acting is the highlight.

According to Variety, Brendan plays the role as if it were his first and last time filming.

Before filming, the actor consulted with the non-profit organization The Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) and learned about eating disorders from nutritionists.

In `The Whale`, the actor incarnates a person weighing 272 kg.

The combination of the 4:3 aspect ratio, low lighting and the claustrophobic setting is intended to create a feeling of restraint for the character.

The work received many mixed reviews from critics.

The opportunity to appear in The Whale came to Brendan in 2020 when director Darren Aronofsky happened to see the trailer of the low-budget film Journey to the End of the Night (2006).
