I Wish

Koichi (Koki Maeda) and his younger brother Ryunosuke (Ohshiro Maeda) have lived apart ever since their parents split up. Koichi lives with their mother Nozomi (Nene Ohtsuka), while Ryunosuke went with their dad, Kenji (Joe Odagiri). Although the brothers talk on the phone all the time, they both wish the family could be reunited. A high speed bullet train link is being built to connect their two towns, and Koichi hears that when the trains going in opposite directions pass each other at their top speed of 160 mph, it will create an energy field capable of granting wishes. So the brothers vow to meet up at the precise point on the track and make the family whole again. Directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda, the man behind Air Doll and Nobody Knows, the film stars real life brothers in the lead roles and has won wide critical acclaim. I Wish will be released in cinemas on 1 February by Arrow Films.
