"One of the year’s most delightful films" ★★★★★ BBC Culture
“A gentle joy, with a standout performance from Parasite’s Song Kang-ho.” ★★★★ Time Out
BROKER is the captivating new feature from acclaimed filmmaker Hirokazu Korre-eda, exclusively in cinemas across the UK and Ireland from 24th February 2023 and starring a standout performance from Parasite’s Song Kang-ho and K-Pop star Lee Ji-eun (IU).
Sang-hyun (Song Kang Ho) runs a laundry shop, but is constantly saddled with debt. Dong-soo (Gang Dong Won), who grew up in an orphanage, works in a baby box facility. One night in the pouring rain, they secretly carry off an infant who was left at the baby box. But on the following day, the mother So-young (Lee Ji Eun) unexpectedly returns for her son Woo-sung. Realising that her baby has been taken, she is about to call the police when the two men tell her everything. Their claim that they stole the baby in order to find him a good home seems outrageous, but So-young ends up joining Sang-hyun and Dong-soo on a journey to find new parents for Woo-sung. Meanwhile, the police detective Su-jin (Doona Bae) and her younger colleague Detective Lee (Lee Joo Young) are silently tailing the group, hoping to catch them in the act at all costs to wrap up their half-year investigation.
