Our Little Sister (2015)

  • 2015
  • Narrative feature, Spotlight on Hirokazu Koreeda
  • 2h 7m

A gently poetic drama from Hirokazu Kore-eda, the Palme d’Or-winning director of Oscar-nominated Best Foreign Language film, Shoplifters.

Nominated for the Palme d’Or when it premiered in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015, Our Little Sister is directed by acclaimed Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda (Shoplifters, Still Walking, I Wish).

In this poetic, gently-paced drama, the lives of three sisters – Sachi, Yoshino and Chika – are transformed when their orphaned half-sister, Suzu, comes to live with them. Veteran actress Kirin Kiki (Shoplifters, Sweet Bean) is perfectly cast in a lovely supporting role as the girls’ great aunt.

Our Little Sister plays as an encore on Cinema 3 after screening in ACMI’s Matinees program in 2019.
