New York Premiere

High school girl Izumi finds a wallet containing ¥300,000 (almost $4,000) that belongs to Sato, a wealthy boy. Instead of returning it, she lends a hefty sum to an older fishing buddy with financial problems. Her classmates Hasumi and Kaoru later force her to return the wallet, but, unable to account for all of the money, Izumi agrees to help Sato console a friend in the hospital by creating a newspaper containing only "good news." Keiichi Kobayashi’s serene coming-of-age story owes its underlying energy to the young actors (all newcomers) who deftly balance quirky humor, teenage uncertainty and subtle shifts in adolescent consciousness.

Japan. 2011. 113 min., HD Cam, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Keiichi Kobayashi. With Ai Ikeda, Ena Koshino, Reiko Fujiwara, Tsubasa Takayama.
