The practice of work is central to Le Fils (The Son), a deceptively complex movie about revenge and redemption. The film seems straightforward enough: Olivier, a carpenter, takes on a young man named Francis as an apprentice. Francis is newly released from juvenile detention, and Olivier slowly discovers that Francis played a part in the death of his son some years earlier. Francis is unaware of the connection he shares with Olivier, this asymmetrical relationship investigates the ideas of forgiveness and vindication… The Son is ultimately a Christian allegory of one man's inchoate desire to return good for evil. French with English subtitles. Free and open to the public.
