Ryota (Masaharu Fukuyama) has earned everything he has by his hard work, and believes nothing can stop him from pursuing his perfect life as a winner. Then one day, he and his wife, Midori (Machiko Ono), get an unexpected phone call from the hospital. Their six-year-old, Keita (Keita Ninomiya), is not ‘their’ son – the hospital gave them the wrong baby. Ryota is forced to make a life-changing decision, to choose between nature and nurture. Seeing Midori’s devotion to Keita even after learning his origin, and communicating with the rough yet caring family that has raised his natural son for the last six years, Ryota also starts to question himself: has he really been a father all these years?
What was the English title of Kore-eda’s previous film, also released in UK cinemas by Arrow last year?
a) I Dunno
b) I Hope
c) I Wish
