Starting on April 21st the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present AFTER THE STORM, a moving historical drama with many twists. Drawing deeper than ever on his personal memories and experiences, award-winning filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda (OUR LITTLE SISTER, STILL WALKING, NOBODY KNOWS) returns with a powerful story of family ties and expectations in AFTER THE STORM. Once a successful and celebrated writer, Ryota, struggles to finish his next novel and can barely make ends meet working at a private detective agency. As his gambling addiction spirals out of control, Ryota’s wife Kyoko (Yoki Maki) leaves him, taking their young son with her. When a typhoon strikes, Ryota unexpectedly spends the night with his son, ex-wife, and aging mother (legendary actress Kirin Kiki), allowing the estranged family the opportunity to believe in each other once again.
