Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda rarely points his camera far from the lives of children and parents. He broke out to a global audience with his 2005 film Nobody Knows, a tragedy about four kids who are abandoned by their mother and left to fend for themselves. He followed that with his masterpiece, 2008’s Still Walking, about a family who reunite on the anniversary of one sibling’s death. In 2011, he made I Wish, a film about two young sons of divorced parents who each live with a different parent.
