The film marks the Korean directing debut of Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda, whose previous credits include the Palme d’Or-winning and Oscar-nomianted 2018 drama Shoplifters.
Also starring in Broker will be Gang Dong-won and Bae Doona. Pic tells the story of individuals whose lives become intertwined around a mysterious ‘Baby Box’, which is a box designed to allow people who are unable to raise children to deposit their babies anonymously.
