Sonoma Film Institute presents, The Third Murder

  • Warren Theatre, Ives 101 (map)

“Master director Hirokazu Kore-eda’s latest film is a tour-de-force examination of guilt and justice. A young defense attorney is called in to help with what seems like the straightforward case of an admitted killer. Misumi (the incomparable Koji Yakusho) genially claims responsibility for the murder of a wealthy factory owner but his story shifts with alarming frequency. His odd behavior raises doubts for the pragmatic lawyer who begins to suspect that Misumi is hiding a more complicated truth.” - SFIFF (2017, 124 min., in Japanese w/English subtitles)  Free Admission
