A moving drama that explores issues of nature vs. nuture with a subtle, humanistic touch.
"The questions posed by Like Father, Like Son are universal
in nature and the manner in which Koreeda addresses them
makes for superior drama"
Sensitively written, smartly directed, and powerfully
performed, like father, like son uses familiar-seeming
elements to tell a thought-provoking story"
A thoroughly satisfying effort that always finds the truth of
the moment, ignoring the ease of melodrama"
It's well-acted and quietly powerful without settling for easy
solutions to its unique dilemma"
Gem of a Family Drama"
