New York Premiere

Career-oriented forty-something divorcees Makoto (Tadanobu Asano) and Yuka (Shinobu Terajima) have each remarried, Makoto living with the younger Nanae (Rena Tanaka) and her two daughters from a previous marriage, and Yuka with her second husband and Makoto’s daughter. When Nanae becomes pregnant and Yuka’s husband ill, each family member is forced to reconsider the bonds of family beyond bloodlines and normative tradition. Yukiko Mishima’s (A Stitch of Life) contemporary realization of Kiyoshi Shigematsu’s 1996 novel (with a screenplay adapted by Haruhiko Arai) is a moving new entry in Japan’s family drama genre. Giving each character complex weaknesses and desires, Mishima brings extraordinary performances from veteran cast and young newcomers Raiju Kamata and Sara Minami.

2017. 127 min. DCP, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Yukiko Mishima. With Tadanobu Asano, Rena Tanaka, Kankuro Kudo, Shinobu Terajima.
