Tokyo Godfathers [東京ゴッドファーザーズ]
Directed By: Satoshi Kon
April 6, 2003 / Japanese / 92 min
On Christmas Eve, three quirky homeless people find an abandoned newborn in a dumpster and search through a Tokyo night to find its parents. Anime legend Satoshi Kon’s caper-comedy is another in a line of Japanese films, such as last semester’s Shoplifters, that ask “what makes a family?”
