Divorced and gambling away what meager earnings he makes as a private investigator at the horse track, middle-aged Ryota must make a last-ditch effort to make amends with the family he's alienated: his recently widowed mother, his distrusting ex-wife, and the young son he struggles to connect with. Bringing to bear all of the empathy and mastery of his previous work, director Hirokazu Kore-eda (Like Father, Like Son, MFF2014) paints an exquisite portrait of intergenerational family dysfunction and changing ideals of masculinity and parenting with his trademark delicate touch.
