Opens on March 17!
Gentle and melancholy yet surprisingly amusing, the latest film by celebrated Japanese auteur Hirokazu Kore-eda (Our Little Sister) focuses on Ryota (Hiroshi Abe), a failed writer, third-rate detective, and no-luck gambler who has become separated from his wife and young son. When a typhoon strikes one night, the broken family is forced to spend the night together at the home of Ryota's mother, where the ensuing interaction — free of melodrama or forced catharsis — is tender, bittersweet, and quietly incisive, in true Kore-eda style.
