The Hope College Knickerbocker Winter Film series will continue with the film “Like Father, Like Son” on Monday-Saturday, Feb. 2-7, at 7:30 p.m. in the Knickerbocker Theatre in downtown Holland.
“Like Father, Like Son,” is an award-winning family drama from Japan. Following an unexpected phone call, affluent architect Ryota and his wife, Midori, learn that their six-year-old son, Keita, was switched at the hospital and is not their biological child. Seeing Midori’s devotion to Keita even after the news, and observing the rough yet caring family that has raised his biological son for the last six years, Ryota begins to question his own values on fatherhood as he must choose between “nature” and “nurture,” a decision that will change lives forever.
The film is not rated.
