In this offbeat comedy, Setsuko, a lonely, angry, sullen woman, lives a life of quiet desperation, suffering her inane co-workers and trudging home to a studio apartment that barely offers enough space to sleep and hang her clothes. She lives vicariously through her niece, Mika, who suddenly runs off to America with her English teacher, John. Setsuko, who has a midlife crush on the teacher, impulsively decides to follow them with her estranged sister, Ayako, in tow. Throughout the film the emphasis is on feminine sensibilities and quirky surprises. Some of those are cute, like Setsuko’s barely-concealed lust-crush on John and others are dark, hitting viewers with a little ugly reality in the midst of Setsuko’s seemingly hopeless romantic fantasy. 2016 Sundance, winner: International Filmmakers Award; 2018 Beijing International Film Festival, winner: Best New Director.
