CUTIE AND THE BOXER

When 19-year-old Noriko moved to New York City, her plans to study art were derailed by love. Now, 40 years into her marriage to Ushio, a painter many years her senior, Noriko seeks her own artistic identity as her 80-year-old husband struggles to establish his legacy. Noriko's newfound recognition and Ushio's disappointment over never receiving the fame he desired serve as the backdrop to a poignant portrait of marriage, sacrifice, aging and two lives dedicated to art. – SS
