Viggo Mortensen, Lance Henriksen talk estranged family in-fighting and dementia in 'Falling'

Viggo Mortensen makes his feature filmmaking debut with Falling, and serves as a triple threat - actor, writer, and director. Mortensen's character is charged with caring for his ailing father, played by Lance Henriksen, who is struggling with dementia.

In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, Mortensen spoke about how the story was at least party inspired by his own experiences.

"When dementia is depicted [in film] there's something about it that doesn't quite gel with my experience, and I've had a lot" he said. "Both my parents, step-father — tons of it. On both sides of the family."
