Like Father, Like Son

Kore-Eda took Cannes’ Jury Prize for this poignant, sensitive drama that explores the age-old debate of nature versus nurture. Workaholic architect Ryota’s life with wife Midori and son Keita is abruptly overturned when authorities reveal that Keita is not his biological son. Due to a switch at birth, their "true" son has been raised in the warm-hearted home of working-class shopkeeper Yudai and his wife. The difference in each couple’s approach to the excruciating dilemma and the gradual emotional awakening of the all-too-rational Ryota reveals Kore-Eda’s rich sense of humanity.
