Hirokazu Kore-eda's Our Little Sister on Blu-ray and DVD in June

6 May 2016

Three sisters – Sachi, Yoshino and Chika – live together in a large house in the city of Kamakura. When their father – absent from the family home for the last 15 years – dies, they travel to the countryside for his funeral, and meet their shy teenage half-sister. Bonding quickly with the orphaned Suzu, they invite her to live with them. Suzu eagerly agrees, and a new life of joyful discovery begins for the four siblings...

The latest film from widely acclaimed Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda (After Life, Still Walking, I Wish, Like Father, Like Son), Our Little Sister [Umimachi Diary] was described as "Exquisite" by Peter Bradshaw in The Guardian and "Full of quiet joy and simple pleasures" by Tim Robey in The Telegraph. It was also a hit at the 2016 Awards of the Japanese Academy, winning five major awards – including Best Film and Best Director – and being nominated for a further eight, and was nominated for the Palme D'Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
