LIKE FATHER LIKE SON

Prolific filmmaker Hirokazu Koreeda (Afterlife, Maborosi, Nobody Knows) continues to recall master director Ozu with his tender films of family life in modern Japan. Here, Ryota is a successful Tokyo architect who works long hours to provide for his wife, Midori and six-year-old son, Keita.

But when a blood test reveals Keita and another baby were switched at birth, two very different families are forced to make a difficult decision, while Ryota confronts his own issues of responsibility and what it means to be a father. This story of personal redemption is both moving and playful. With subtitles. (Hirokazu Koreeda; Japan; 2014; 130 min)

 

Film screens at 7:30, meet in lobby beforehand.

      Not sure as I saw in today's PG that there's a public reception for the Mkt Square art at 6:30 at Original Oyster House. I'm going to stop there first before SPACE.
