“The Whale” starring Brendan Fraser received another enthusiastic standing ovation, this time at the London Film Festival on Tuesday.
In a video shared by Lauren Bradshaw, the 53-year-old actor appears emotional during the minutes-long standing ovation, and takes a deep bow.
Fraser can be seen hugging director Darren Aronofsky and screenwriter Samuel D. Hunter, who joined him on stage.
“Am I at Venice [Film Festival]? Five min standing ovation for Brendan Fraser’s masterpiece performance in #TheWhale,” Bradshaw tweeted alongside the video. “He had the crowd in the palm of his hand the entire movie. My heart is in my throat.”
“The Whale,” which follows a severely obese English teacher (Fraser) trying to reconnect with his estranged daughter (Sadie Sink), will arrive in theaters Dec. 9.
