Hirokazu Kore-Eda, the Palme d'Or-winning director of 'Shoplifters' returns this month with 'The Truth' - his first feature outside of Japan, starring Juliette Binoche and Catherine Deneuve. Discover another of the director's elegant, but quietly devastating tales of family life, 'Our Little Sister', adapted from Yoshida Akimi’s best-selling graphic novel masterpiece 'Umimachi Diary'. Sachi, Yoshino and Chika are three sisters living happily together in a relaxed, tight-knit seaside town south of Tokyo. When their long-estranged father passes away they travel to the countryside to attend his funeral, where they meet their shy teenage half-sister, Suzu. Bonding quickly, they invite the orphaned Suzu to live with them and she eagerly agrees, sparking a journey of self-discovery for all four sisters, looking back into painful pasts but also reaching forward to hopeful futures... Filled with stunningly photographed landscapes and scene after scene of mouth-watering food, 'Our Little Sister' is a sumptuous portrait of a beautifully elegant culture. But where its heart truly lies is in its depiction of intensely believable characters with whom every one of us can relate. ★★★★ "Watching this film is a vitamin boost for the soul" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★ "A gentle, lyrical, beautifully shot story" - Kate Muir, The Times ★★★★ "An irresistible, light-filled family drama... slips down as easily as the many meals it shares with us" - Dave Calhoun, Time Out
