Like Father, Like Son

Kore-eda's award-winning drama is the emotionally charged story of two families who discover that their babies were switched in the hospital when they were born. Strict father Ryota (Masaharu Fukuyama) believes in discipline, structure and hard work for six-year-old Keita (Keita Ninomiya), who would rather play video games than practice piano. When Ryota and his wife Midori (Machiko Ono) learn their biological son Ryusei (Hwang Sho-gen) has been raised by easy-going electrical store owner Yudai (Lily Franky) and his wife Yukari (Yoko Maki), they start swapping kids on the weekends to see if they can connect with their misplaced offspring.

Like Father, Like Son will be released on 24 February from Arrow Films.
