海街diary

Our Little Sister (October Monthly Screening)

“You are shaken, by the end, at how much you care about these women and how sorry you are to leave their company.” - A.O. Scott, New York Times

Adapted from the manga Umimachi Diary, Hirokazu Koreeda’s (Nobody Knows, Like Father, Like Son) film was nominated for a record 12 Japanese Academy Awards and won for Best Film, Best Director among others. Three sisters live together in their late grandmother's house in Kamakura. Attending the funeral of their estranged father they meet their teenaged half-sister Suzu and immediately fall for the spell of this exquisite young woman. With no one to properly care for her, they take the shy young girl into their home where her presence evokes long suppressed memories of their own unhappy childhood and abandonment by their mother.

This sumptuous and moving family drama stars Ayase Haruka, Nagasawa Masami, Kaho and Suzu Hirose.
