Actor Brendan Fraser was moved to tears after he got a six-minute long standing ovation after the screening of The Whale at the Venice Film Festival. After the credits started rolling, the actor tried to walk out but he had to stop after the applause went on, he was eventually moved to tears. 

The Whale is directed by Darren Aronofsky, known for films like Black Swan and Requiem for a Dream while A24 is producing the film. Brendan Fraser is playing a 300 Kg man in the film who struggles to connect with his teen daughter, played by Stranger Things star Sadie Sink.
