TOKYO GODFATHERS Opening at the Cinema Art Theater in Lewes
Tokyo Godfathers is the acclaimed holiday classic from master director Satoshi Kon (Paprika, Perfect Blue).
In modern-day Tokyo, three homeless people’s lives are forever changed when they discover a baby girl at a garbage dump on Christmas Eve. As the New Year fast approaches, these three forgotten members of society band together to solve the mystery of the abandoned child and the fate of her parents. Along the way, encounters with seemingly unrelated events and people force them to confront their own haunted pasts, as they learn to face their future, together.
Co-written by Keiko Nobumoto (Cowboy Bebop) and featuring a whimsical score by Keiichi Suzuki, Tokyo Godfathers is a masterpiece by turns heartfelt, hilarious and highly original, a tale of hope and redemption in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. [2003, JAPAN, 93 min, Rated: PG-13]
