“Are you who you wanted to be?” asks the young son of former novelist and gambling addict Ryota. It’s one of the central questions in this sweet-natured comedy about father/son relationships and the gifts and curses that are passed down through generations. Dwelling on his past glory as a prize-winning author, Ryota wastes the money he makes as a private detective on gambling and can barely pay child support. After the death of his father, his aging mother and beautiful ex-wife both seem to be moving on with their lives. Renewing contact with his initially distrusting family, Ryota struggles to take back control of his existence and to find a lasting place in the life of his young son – until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again. From the director of Like Father, like Son and Our Little Sister.

Reviews

The film is smart, funny, beautiful and profoundly moving—nothing less than what we’d expect from this master.
