Reportedly French writer/director Florian Zeller had Anthony Hopkins directly in mind as Zeller was writing the screenplay-- so much so that he stated that if Hopkins did not accept the role, Zeller would have made the film in the French language.
What seems to be going on here is that Zeller and Hampton's story seems to blend the facts of Anthony's life with what is going on in Anthony's life in Anthony's mind, which makes for a confusing but heartbreaking story about the aging process that makes squirm worthy entertainment.
