Sea of Revival (Nagi machi), dir. Kazuya Shiraishi, Japan 2019, 124 min., Japanese with English subtitles, Cert. 15

Sea of Revival tells the story of a working-class family trying to get by despite each of their personal demons. 

Ikou (Shingo Katori) is a 40-year-old punter who moves to his partner Ayumi’s (Naomi Nishida) coastal hometown with her reticent teenage daughter Minami; a relocation triggered by Ayumi’s father’s ailing health. Just when it seems like the family has gone through enough, a tragedy befalls one of them, and Ikou’s guilt turns his gambling addiction into a never-ending purgatory. 

Also starring Lily Franky (Shoplifters) as the ever-obliging family friend Onodera.
