Tokyo Story and Make Way for Tomorrow

Series Site

"One of Golden Age Hollywood’s greatest weepies screens alongside Yasujiro Ozu’s exquisite remake. In the emotional wrecking ball Make Way for Tomorrow, an elderly couple left homeless by the Depression is brushed aside by their adult children. This story is loosely adapted for postwar Japan in Tokyo Story, one of the unimpeachable masterpieces of world cinema. Both are among the most compassionate, heartbreaking, deeply affecting considerations of aging and generational change ever to grace the screen. Bring tissues." —BAM
