A single woman, seemingly stuck in a drab, meaningless life in Tokyo, is convinced by her niece to enroll in an unorthodox English class that requires her to wear a blonde wig and take on an American alter ego named “Lucy.” Her assumed identity awakens hidden desires, but there are unforseen consequences.
Shinobu Terjima and Josh Hartnett star in San Francisco filmmaker Atsuko Hirayanagi’s bittersweet cross-cultural comedy. / 95 min
“CRITIC’S PICK! AN AGAINST-THE-ODDS CHARMER about a woman, a tragic wig and an improbable journey. It’s a near-minor miracle that just about everything works … a movie in which the human comedy is by turns TENDER, PLAINTIVE, HEARTFELT & JOYFUL!“
–The New York Times
VOICE CHOICE! “BRACINGLY FUNNY! ” –The Village Voice
“VERY SMART…HARTNETT IS A GEM!” –NPR
“A DELICIOUSLY DARK COMEDY!”
“HARTNETT IS FANTASTIC… A TENSE, OBSERVANT & HEARTFELT ACCOMPLISHMENT!”
