Third Window Films has announced the worldwide Blu-ray debut of Isao Yukisada‘s acclaimed coming-of-age drama, GO, Japan’s official ‘Best Foreign Language Film’ submission for the 74th Academy Awards in 2002, which will be released on Blu-ray and Digital on 22 May 2023.
Sugihara (Yosuke Kubozuka) feels more like a misfit than most high school students, being the son of a Japanese mother (Shinobu Otake) and a North Korean father (Tsutomu Yamazaki). Changing schools does not help much, as he is simply taunted by a different group of kids. Fortunately, his father has given him boxing lessons to keep the bullies at bay. When Sugihara falls for the popular Sakurai (Kou Shibasaki) and she seems interested in him, he sees the possibility of being accepted.
