Director : Kore-eda Hirokazu

Starring :   Sakura Andô 
Eita Nagayama    
Soya Kurokawa
2 hr  07 min    

The mother, Saori (Sakura Ando) is a widow and has devoted herself to creating a good life for her 11-year-old son Minato (Sōya Kurokawa). When his behaviour suddenly changes, becoming sullen and aggressive, she’s concerned. Is this just the beginning of adolescence, or something else? After a particularly extreme incident, she confronts him, and learns that one of his teachers, Mr Hori (Eita Nagayama), has told him that he is a bad person with the brain of a pig. It’s the sort of remark that an adult might brush off but that has evidently disturbed this sensitive boy. Why would a teacher do a thing like that?
