WATERVILLE — The Maine Film Center will show “After The Storm” at 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 25 and 26, at Railroad Square Cinema, 17 Railroad Square.

The film is from the profoundly humanist Japanese director, Hirokazu Kore-eda (”Our Little Sister”). Dwelling on his past glory as a prize-winning author, Ryota wastes the money he makes as a private detective on gambling and can barely pay child support. After the death of his father, his aging mother and ex-wife seem to be moving on with their lives.

Renewing contact with his initially distrusting family, Ryota struggles to take back control of his existence and to find a lasting place in the life of his young son — until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again. 117 minutes (unrated).

Tickets cost $8. For more information, visit www.railroadsquarecinema.com or call 873-6526.
