As his Palme d'Or-winning new film 'Shoplifters' opens in our cinemas, discover another elegant, but quietly devastating tale from the master of the family drama Hirokazu Kore-eda, 'I Wish'. In the wake of their parents’ divorce, 12-year-old Koichi (Koki Maeda) and his young brother Ryunosuke (Ohshirô Maeda, Koki’s real life brother) have been split up. Koichi lives with his mother and grandparents in Kagoshima, in the shadow of a constantly rumbling volcano. Ryunosuke lives a comparatively spirited life with his rock-musician father in Fukuoka. When Koichi discovers that a new bullet train line is due to open connecting the two towns, he determines that the intense energy generated by two passing trains in opposite directions will work a miracle, and their wish to be reunited will come true. ★★★★★ " it’s hard to remember a better film about pre-teen life" - Tom Huddleston, Time Out ★★★★★ "The moving and deeply satisfying work of a director who just keeps on getting better" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
