Coming Soon

Toshiro Mifune is unforgettable as Kingo Gondo, a wealthy industrialist whose family becomes the target of a cold-blooded kidnapper, in High and Low, the highly influential domestic drama and police procedural from director Akira Kurosawa (Seven Samurai, Rashomon, Throne of Blood, Yojimbo, Ran). When it turns out the criminal has snatched the wrong child, a moral conundrum arises: save his money and risk the child's life, or save the child and risk his wealth? Adapting Ed McBain's detective novel King's Ransom, Kurosawa moves effortlessly from compelling race-against-time thriller to exacting social commentary, creating a diabolical treatise on contemporary Japanese society. (Fully subtitled)
