Broker12A

Directed by Hirokazu Koreeda | South Korea | 2022 | 2h 9m | Korean w/ English subtitles | Starring Song Kang-ho, Gang Dong-won, Bae Doona, Ji-eun Lee, Lee Joo-young

Two workers at a Busan church operate an illegal moonlighting business, selling on abandoned babies to affluent families. But when a young mother returns to collect her child, she uncovers their plan and unexpectedly decides to join them in an attempt to find more suitable parents for her child. A typically offbeat and moving road-trip drama from acclaimed Japanese auteur Hirokazu Kore-eda (Shoplifters), starring award-winning South Korean actor Song Kang-ho (Parasite).

Reviews

‘One of the year’s most delightful films. Hirokazu Kore-eda’s big-hearted…follow-up to Shoplifters is directed with impeccable skill, delicacy and compassion’
★★★★★
Nicholas Barber, BBC

‘“Broker,” a road trip odyssey reflecting on the family we choose and the family we tearfully let go of. Absorbing and heartwarming, it’s easy to forget that this tender drama is about human trafficking.’
★★★★★
Iana Murray, The Playlist

Plan your visit

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
