Too Late!

Palme d'Or-winning Japanese director Hirokazu Koreeda (Shoplifters, Like Father Like Son) is famous for heartbreakingly humane stories that interrogate the meaning of family. And his return to Cannes with Broker provides another happy-sad-sweet angle on this ever-recurring theme, only this time transposed to South Korea.

A rumpled, good-hearted but morally, shall we say, flexible "baby broker" (Parasite's Song Kang-ho, who won the Cannes Best Actor for this role) inadvertently creates a little clan of his own when a get-rich-quick scheme to traffic a newborn to a wealthy couple trying to bypass the adoption process, gets much more complicated. Full of spiky characters who cannot help reverting to their better natures even when their apparent best interests lie elsewhere, Broker is a charming, funny and ultimately very moving drama about the families we choose – or maybe, the families that choose us.
