“A delicate, unforced meditation on the bonds of family and the joys and wonders hidden in everyday life”

Los Angeles Times

Nominated for the Palme d’Or when it premiered in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015, Our Little Sister is directed by acclaimed Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda (ShopliftersStill Walking, I Wish). 

In this poetic, gently-paced drama, the lives of three sisters – Sachi, Yoshino and Chika – are transformed when their orphaned half-sister, Suzu, comes to live with them. Veteran actress Kirin Kiki (Shoplifters, Sweet Bean) is well cast in a lovely supporting role as the girls’ great aunt.
