Brendan Fraser stars as a morbidly obese English teacher who tries to reconnect with his daughter in Darren Aronofsky’s drama.
Brendan Fraser makes his big movie comeback with his Oscar-nominated performance in Darren Aronofsky’s drama The Whale.
The Whale, based on Samuel D. Hunter’s play of the same name, tells the story of Charlie (Fraser), a severely obese and reclusive English teacher who punishes himself for past regrets by binge-eating food.
The only company Charlie has are his students, who don’t see him as he turns off his webcam, and his friend Liz (Hong Chau), a nurse who strongly advises him to visit a hospital.
However, one day, his estranged teenage daughter Ellie (Sadie Sink) shows up unannounced and has a lot of resentments to get off her chest.
Despite her attitude, Charlie sees her visit as his last opportunity to reconnect and make things right with her.
Fraser achieved awards buzz as soon as The Whale premiered at the Venice Film Festival in September and that has translated into an Oscar and BAFTA nomination...
