Adapted from a short story by Haruki Murakami, and winner of the Best Picture in a non-English Language film at the 2022 Golden Globe Awards, this haunting road movie was co-written and directed by Ryusuke Hamaguchi.

We meet Yūsuke Kafuku, a recently widowed actor and director who is assigned a young woman to chauffeur him as he directs a production of Uncle Vanya at a theatre festival. As tensions mount within the cast, he is forced to face some painful truths from his past, and with the help of his chauffeur travels a road from love and loss to acceptance and peace.
