Director Hirokazu Kore-eda’s follow-up to his Palme d’Or-winning SHOPLIFTERS follows two brokers who sell orphaned infants — circumventing the bureaucracy of legal adoption — to affluent couples who can’t have children of their own. After an infant’s mother surprises the duo by returning to ensure her child finds a good home, the three embark on a journey to find the right couple, building an unlikely family of their own.

“Bittersweet and beautiful, BROKER sits easily amongst Kore-eda’s finest films, and as one of the best filmmakers working today, that is surely saying something.” ––Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, Alliance of Women Film Journalists

“The execution of this premise is, somehow, miraculous in its sensitivity, asking questions about issues of ethics, of choice, of money, and murder, and family, and how to find love in all this sorry mess.” ––Ella Kemp, IndieWire
