2022 (South Korea) 129 minutes

Directed by: Hirokazu Kore-eda

Song Kang-ho deservedly won Best Actor at this spring’s Cannes Film Festival for his performance in writer-director Hirokazu Kore-eda’s latest bittersweet exploration of the de facto families we form across our lives. In BROKER, he plays Sang-hyeon, who operates a black market business with his pal Dong-soo (Gang Dong-won), selling infants left at baby boxes to parents looking to adopt. But when one of the mothers, So-young (Lee Ji-eun), has second thoughts about surrendering her child, the men work with her to find a good home for the infant. Filming in South Korea for the first time, the acclaimed Japanese auteur (whose Shoplifters, won Cannes’ 2018 Palme d’Or) has crafted a road-trip drama full of gentle observations about the ways in which we all sometimes feel abandoned — and how the search for home can be a perpetual quest.
