Theatrical trailer for Like Father, Like Son.
The 'switched at birth' urban legend and the Nature vs. Nurture debate provide Hirokazu Kore-eda with a fresh opportunity to revisit his ongoing preoccupation with family dynamics and parent-child relationships in contemporary Japan. The life of go-getting workaholic architect Ryota one of comfort and quietly ordered affluence with his wife Midori and son Keita is violently overturned when hospital administrators reveal the unthinkable: Keita is not his biological son. Due to a switch at the hospital, his 'true' son has been raised in the disheveled but warm-hearted home of working-class shopkeeper Yudai and his wife. The different approaches of both couples to their excruciating dilemma and the gradual emotional awakening of the all-too-rational Ryota are at the core of this sensitive drama of family feeling, which showcases Kore-eda's rich sense of humanity.
Like Father, Like Son -- 'Like Father, Like Son' is a loving tribute to Palm Springs Entertainer and 'Massacre Mafia Style' creator Duke Mitchell featuring remembrances from his son Jeffrey Mitchell, interviews with family friends and rare archival footage and home movies.
