Like Father, Like Son (2013) (Blu-ray) (Special Edition) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region A
| Ono Machiko (Actor)
| Maki Yoko
| Lily Franky
Is a family defined by blood or by love? That's the key question in Like Father, Like Son, the latest film from acclaimed auteur Kore-eda Hirokazu. Japanese superstar Fukuyama Masaharu stars as an architect who falls into a parent's nightmare when he is informed that his six-year-old son was actually switched at birth with another couple's son. After Still Walking and I Wish, Kore-eda once again explores the complexities of the familial bond with this engrossing and heartrending drama, portraying a devastating situation with gentle intimacy and a down-to-earth touch. The winner of the Jury Prize at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, Like Father, Like Son also stars Ono Machiko (Climber's High), Maki Yoko (Love Strikes) and Lily Franky (All Around Us).
Ryota (Fukuyama Masaharu) thought he had it all: a good job, a lovely wife (Ono Machiko), an expensive home and an adorable six-year-old son to shape in his own image. However, everything comes crashing down when he is informed that his son was switched at birth with another family's child. After getting in touch with the other couple, the down-to-earth Yudai (Lily Franky) and Yukari (Yoko Maki), Ryota is faced with a difficult dilemma: Keep the son that he has spent six years with, or give him up for a stranger that he happens to be related to by blood?

| Okada Yoshinori
| Aso Kumiko
| Yasuda Shota
Once a struggling scriptwriter himself, Café Isobe writer-director Yoshida Keisuke channels his struggle through a woman with a single-minded goal to become a scriptwriter in dramedy The Workhorse and the Bigmouth. Kumiko Aso (Instant Swamp) stars as Michiyo, a hardworking scriptwriter (the "Workhorse" in the film's title) who is starting to realize that she may not have what it takes to be successful. During a scriptwriting course, Michiyo meets Yoshimi (Kanjani8's Yasuda Shota), a younger man who keeps boasting about his writing than actually doing it (earning him the "Bigmouth" in the title). Their pursuit for the film industry doesn't get any better for them, but the odd platonic couple may end up finding some comfort in each other.
This edition comes with bonus DVD containing a visual commentary, making of, stage events and trailers.
