AFTER THE STORM
(NR) 117min
[in Japanese with subtitles]
May 2 - 4, 6:00 & 8:30
Renowned humanist filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda (Our Little Sister, AfterLife) explores the emotions in a family’s dynamics in this richly observed, moving and many-layered drama. A deadbeat dad (Hiroshi Abe) is repeating the mistakes of his recently deceased father, yet is being enabled by everyone in his circle, including his sister and mother (Kirin Kiki, Sweet Bean). Estranged from his wife (Yoko Maki, Like Father Like Son) and young son but wanting to reunite with his family, he slyly arranges that they are all together stuck at his mother’s apartment during a typhoon.
