A SUBTITLED film will portray the story of fatherhood at a movie night in Leek.

The 15 rated Like Father, Like Son will be screened at The Foxlowe Arts Centre in Leek on Tuesday (February 4).

Ryota Nonomiya is a successful businessman driven by money. When he learns that his biological son was switched with another child after birth, he must make a life-changing decision and choose his true son or the boy he raised as his own.

Examining the themes of nature/nurture, family, fatherhood and love, this intelligent, gentle, yet playful drama contains some of the best, most unobtrusive direction of children's inner lives.

Kore-eda is one of the great contemporary film-makers and won the Jury Prize at Cannes for this film.
