Acclaimed Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda (Nobody Knows, Still Walking) won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival for this touching drama. The life of go-getting workaholic architect Ryota – one of comfort and quietly ordered affluence with his wife Midori and son Keita – is violently overturned when hospital administrators reveal the unthinkable: Keita is not his biological son. Switched at birth by the maternity ward nurse, his "true" son has been raised in the disheveled but warm-hearted home of working-class shopkeeper Yudai and his wife. The different approaches of both couples to their excruciating dilemma and the gradual emotional awakening of the all-too-rational Ryota are at the core of this sensitive drama of family feeling, which showcases Kore-eda's rich sense of humanity.
