Product description

Product Description

Would you choose your natural son, or the son you believed was yours after spending 6 years together? Hirokazu Kore-eda, the globally acclaimed director of Nobody Knows, Still Walking and I Wish, returns to the big screen with another family - a family thrown into torment after a phone call from the hospital where the son was born...

Ryota has earned everything he has by his hard work, and believes nothing can stop him from pursuing his perfect life as a winner. Then one day, he and his wife, Midori, get an unexpected phone call from the hospital. Their 6-year-old son, Keita, is not their son - the hospital gave them the wrong baby.

Ryota is forced to make a life-changing decision, to choose between nature and nurture. Seeing Midori s devotion to Keita even after learning his origin, and communicating with the rough yet caring family that has raised his natural son for the last six years, Ryota also starts to question himself: has he really been a father all these years... The moving story of a man who finally faces himself when he encounters an unexpected wall for the first time in his life.

Like Father, Like Son was the winner of the Jury Prize at The Cannes Film Festival 2013 and is in competition for the Best Film award at this year s London Film Festival.
