Japanese master Hirokazu Kore-eda returns to his socially conscious dramas with this deeply moving story in which an impoverished family adopts a young girl they meet in the street fearing that she is being abused. A powerful meditation on big questions such as living a good life and taking responsibility in an uncaring society. One of the highlights of the year returns. Please note, unfortunately, the screenings of 3 Identical Strangers on Sat 16 March has been cancelled due to the film being withdrawn from distribution. Please accept our apologies.
