Description

An affectionate, shrewdly observed drama of family life from Japan’s celebrated master, Kore-eda Hirokazu. Dwelling on his past glory as a prize-winning author, Ryota wastes the money he makes as a private detective on gambling and can barely pay child support. After the death of his father, his aging mother and beautiful ex-wife seem to be moving on with their lives. Renewing contact with his initially distrustful family, Ryota struggles to take back control of his existence and to find a lasting place in the life of his young son – until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again.

“A classic Japanese family drama of gentle persuasion and staggering simplicity from Kore-eda Hirokazu.” - Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
