Ryôta has a dark cloud over his head. His once-promising career as an author has evaporated into a case of writer’s block. His marriage has fallen apart. To support his gambling problem, his work as a private investigator has sunk to blackmailing the cheating spouses he’s supposed to be investigating. But as a typhoon looms in the forecast, Ryôta attempts to reconcile with his estranged ex-wife and son by examining the source of his problems: himself. Written and directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda (Still Walking; Like Father, Like Son), After the Storm deftly blends light comedy with kitchen-sink drama. With sharp dialogue and understated performances from Kore-eda veterans Hiroshi Abe and Yôko Maki, After the Storm is a sensitive family portrait from a modern master of the form.  ~LB
