Stanley's Film Club: Our Little Sister @ Stanley Halls | England | United Kingdom

Based on the award-winning manga series Umimachi Diary, Our Little Sister is the new film by acclaimed director Hirokazu Koreeda (Like Father, Like Son, I Wish). Nominated for the Palme d’Or, this exquisite family drama is one of the most graceful, tender and moving films of 2016.

Sachi, Yoshino and Chika are three sisters living happily together in a relaxed, tight-knit seaside town south of Tokyo. When their long-estranged father passes away they travel to the countryside to attend his funeral, where they meet their shy teenage half-sister, Suzu. Bonding quickly, they invite the orphaned Suzu to live with them and she eagerly agrees, sparking a journey of self-discovery for all four sisters, looking back into painful pasts but also reaching forward to hopeful futures…

Filled with stunningly photographed landscapes and scene after scene of mouth-watering food, Our Little Sister is a sumptuous portrait of a beautifully elegant culture. But where its heart truly lies is in its depiction of intensely believable characters with whom every one of us can relate.

There will be origami in the bar before the film, and a free green tea for every ticket holder!
