Like Father Like Son

Like Father Like Son

A film by Hirokazu Kore-eda
Starring Masaharu Fukuyama, Machiko Ono, Yoko Maki

In Like Father, Like Son, acclaimed director Kore-eda Hirokazu (Nobody Knows, I Wish) has created another fully realized and deeply touching family drama.

Ryota has earned everything he has through hard work and is confident in the agenda he has planned out for both a successful career and ideal family.

When he and his wife, Midori, receive an unexpected phone call from the hospital where their son was born, their lives, and the lives of another family, are thrown into turmoil. The son he believes is his, is not, two boys were accidentally switched at birth. Suddenly, Ryota is forced to face a life changing decision, examine his priorities and ask himself if he has truly been a “father” for the past six years.

Relentlessly quiet character study that is photographed with Zen remove and scored metronomically to Bach and Beethoven, each scene clipped to the barest essentials.Time Out New York
