Starring: Makiko Esumi, Takashi Naitô, Tadanobu Asano
Japanese with English subtitles

FRIDAY, JUNE 7TH AT 7:00PM & 9:30PM

SUNDAY, JUNE 9TH AT 3:00PM

Hirokazu Koreeda’s directorial debut tells the story of Yumiko, a young mother haunted by the past loss of her grandmother and the recent loss of her husband.
