The new film from Japanese master Hirokazu Kore-eda (whose I Wish screened at Spotlight in 2012) is a characteristically warm and affecting portrait of an estranged family reconnecting during a typhoon. Once a renowned author, Ryota has coasted on his glory a little too long, and now finds himself a divorced deadbeat dad, making ends meet as a private detective (and a lousy one at that). The death of his own father inspires Ryota to reconcile with his own family, if they’ll take him back. Filmed in a housing complex where Kore-eda lived as a child, After the Storm is rendered with the intimacy of a cherished memory. In Japanese with English subtitles.
