This latest effort from the director of Like Father, Like Son takes a nuanced look at the emotional stunting left in the wake of parental abandonment. It follows three adult sisters who are united with a younger half-sibling they never knew existed. Koreeda eschews stereotypes in favour of a complex study of four strong and uniquely flawed female characters. The result is a gentle masterpiece about people who are constantly learning and redefining what it means to care for and love one another.
