After the Storm – Nov 9th
Director: Hirokazu Koreeda 1hr 50min. PG. Japanese w/English Subtitles.
From the Director/Writer of OUR LITTLE SISTER, and LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON comes a heart warming story of a father who after the death of his father, struggles to find child support money and reconnect with his son and ex-wife. Calling the film “a classic Japanese family drama of gentle persuasion and staggering simplicity”, which is “beautifully balanced between gentle comedy and the melancholy reality of how people really are,” Deborah Young of The Hollywood Reporter suggests the film is about how “you can’t always have the life you want, or be who you want to be”
