100% ON ROTTEN TOMATOES!

Setsuko is a lonely single woman, an office worker in Tokyo, and she isn’t getting any younger. But opportunity knocks when her niece begs her to take over the private English lessons she has paid for. John (Josh Hartnett) is no ordinary teacher. Learning American English in his class involves taking an American name - Setsuko becomes Lucy - and lots of hugs. It’s not long before Setsuko has a crush on him, a crush that will take her all the way to California. But reinventing yourself is never easy…

This bilingual comedy from Atsuko Hirayanagi sounds cute on paper, but it’s steelier than you might think - and packs a mean punch. A lot of the credit goes to Shinobu Terajima, superb in the lead role. –Vancouver International Film Festival
"AN AGAINST-THE-ODDS CHARMER...a movie in which the human comedy is by turns tender, plaintive, heartfelt and joyful!" The New York Times
“BRACINGLY FUNNY!” Village Voice
