Like Father Like Son Ryota Nonomiya is a successful businessman driven by money. When he learns that his biological son was switched with another child after birth, he must make a life-changing decision and choose his true son or the boy he raised as his own. Examining the themes of nature/nurture, family, fatherhood and love, this intelligent, gentle, yet playful drama contains some of the best, most unobtrusive direction of children’s inner lives. Kore-eda is one of the great contemporary film-makers and won the Jury Prize at Cannes for this film. “Kore-eda has crafted a piercing, tender poem about the bittersweet ebb and flow of paternal love” Robbie Collin, The Telegraph.
