After January’s dark Spanish thriller, Marshland, the Swindon Film Society kicks-off February with “Our Little Sister”, an irresistible, warm, sun-soaked family drama from Japanese writer-director Hirokazu Kore-eda.
The film follows three adult sisters who come together to take in a younger half-sister after their father’s death. Living with the complications and conflicts of modern family life, these young women show dignity and kindness towards 13-year-old Suzu, as their family slowly takes on a new shape.
The Swindon Film Society showed Kore-eda’s previous film “Like Father, Like Son” back in the 2014 season, which proved to be a great success at the time, but Our Little Sister is perhaps one of Kore-eda’s most beautiful films; a warm, gentle drama from start to finish.
Our Little Sister is showing at the Arts Centre on Wednesday 1st February at 7.45pm. The doors will open at 7.15pm with drinks available in the Arts Centre bar, and with a DVD sale from 7.00pm from which all benefits will go towards the Swindon Film Society to help support future screenings.
