"On the margins of Tokyo, a dysfunctional band of outsiders are united by fierce loyalty, a penchant for petty theft, and playful grifting. When the young son is arrested, secrets are exposed that upend their tenuous, below-the-radar existence and test their quietly radical belief that it is love--not blood--that defines a family."--Container

"Three twenty-something sisters - Sachi, Yoshino and Chika - live together in a large old house in the seaside town of Kamakura. When they learn of their estranged father's death, they decide to travel to the countryside for his funeral. There they meet their shy teenage half-sister Suzu for the first time and, bonding quickly, invite her to live with them. Suzu eagerly agrees, and begins a new life with her older sisters. Amidst the many and varied colors of Kamakura's four seasons, the four sisters cause each other emotional anguish, and support each other through life's trials, developing a very special bond in the process. Set against the summer ocean sparkling with sunlight, radiant autumn foliage, a tunnel of gorgeous yet impermanent cherry blossom trees, hydrangeas damp from the rainy season, and brilliant fireworks heralding the arrival of another summer, their moving and deeply relatable story depicts the irreplaceable moments that form a true family."--sonyclassics.com, August 1, 2016

"Still Walking is a touching and gentle drama about a family, the grown-up children of which journey to visit their elderly parents on one long summer day. The rare family reunion has been organised to commemorate the tragic death of the eldest son, who drowned in an accident fifteen years before. As the family attempt to reconnect, the individuals realise that although the roomy familial home is as comforting and unchanging as the mother's homemade feast, everyone in the family has subtly changed, and that they are as bound by love as they are torn apart by resentments and secrets. Still Walking measures a subtle balance of gentle humor and wistful sorrow and Kore-eda expertly portrays just how annoying, and exactly how precious, family can be ..."--Container
