Broker (2022)

Hirokazu Kore-eda directs Song Kang-ho, Gang Dong-won and Bae Doona in this Korean drama where a pair of baby dealers try to sell an unwanted child with the mum, a stowaway, the cops and some gangsters in tow.

Like Shoplifters, another makeshift family of low level grifters and a lot of heart. What I liked most about this is that even though it deals with some pretty heavy chew, it could easily be a remake of a forgotten early 90s John Hughes script too… Gets the balance just right between art and entertainment.
