Oh Lucy!
Comedy, Drama | 2017 | NR. 1hr 36min
CAST: Shinobu Terajima, Josh Hartnett, Shioli Kutsuna, Kaho Minami DIRECTOR: Atsuko Hirayanagi ENDS APRIL 5

Oh Lucy! follows Setsuko (Shinobu Terajima in an Independent Spirit Award-nominated performance), a single, emotionally unfulfilled woman, seemingly stuck with a drab, meaningless life in Tokyo. At least until she’s convinced by her niece, Mika (Shioli Kutsuna, Deadpool 2), to enroll in an unorthodox English class that requires her to wear a blonde wig and take on an American alter ego named “Lucy.” The new identity awakens something dormant in Setsuko, and she quickly develops romantic feelings for her American instructor, John (Josh Hartnett, Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful”). When John suddenly disappears from class, Setsuko travels halfway around the world in search of him, and in the outskirts of Southern California, family ties and past lives are tested as she struggles to preserve the dream and promise of “Lucy.”

It's simultaneously silly and telling, cut through with unexpected emotion and satirical bite.
Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger
Equal parts funny and tragic. It sticks with you long after you've seen it.
