2011 | Hirokazu Kore-eda
The latest film from the Japanese director of Still Walking and Nobody Knows is another sensitive tale of children. 12-year-old Koichi lives in the south of Japan with his divorced mother and grandparents. His younger brother Ryunosuke lives in the north with his father. Koichi desperately wishes that his family can be reunited, and when a new bullet train links the two towns, he sees the possibility for a miracle. Has an overall metacritic.com score of 80 (out of 100). “Wise and funny…Works small miracles in depicting the pivotal moment when kids turn from the wishfulness of childhood into shaping the world for themselves.” –Wall St. Journal.
