Setsuko (Shinobu Terajima) is a middle-aged “office lady” in Tokyo whose ennui is upended when she inherits a spot in an unconventional English class. Her teacher John (Josh Hartnett) speaks no Japanese but employs hugging and role-playing, placing a blonde wig on her and renaming her “Lucy.” Strangely liberated by this (and obviously attracted to teacher), Setsuko/Lucy is shattered when she discovers that John has abruptly returned to Los Angeles. Embracing American spontaneity over Japanese formality, she flies to L.A. to find him. This first feature by Atsuko Hirayanagi (an expansion of her celebrated short film) is darkly comic, poignant and ultimately very moving. Executive Producers: Will Ferrell, Adam McKay. Writer/Director: Atsuko Hirayanagi. (Japan/US 2017)
