Location: Event Cinemas Innaloo
Date: February 28th
POWA is off to the movies to see a new original comedy-drama from Ayumu Watanabe (Children of the Sea) and STUDIO 4C (Tekkonkinkreet, Mind Game, Animatrix) – Fortune Favors Lady Nikuko.
Our friends at Madman are offering 4 free double passes to POWA members, meaning that essentially 8 people will be seeing the movie for free. We have received the passes, and are ready to hand them out to all POWA community who comes to the event, though they will be strictly first-come, first-serve.
The movie starts at 7:00pm at Event Cinemas Innaloo, but as we cannot book ahead, we cannot guarantee seats in the cinema. Ensure that you arrive early enough to purchase your tickets at the counter so you don’t end up disappointed. This will be a screening in the original Japanese subtitled version.
“Nikuko is a brash, jolly, scattered, and passionate woman in an otherwise sleepy seaside town in northern Japan. She’s also the single mother of 11-year-old Kikuko, who is her opposite in many ways. Kikuko is a string-bean of a young girl, pensive, quietly curious, and methodical in how she approaches life in this small harbor town.
Nikuko embarrasses Kikuko as any mom of a preteen would, but Nikuko’s bold spirit makes her especially well-known in a town where Kikuko herself wants nothing more than to simply blend in. As Kikuko navigates the everyday social dramas of middle school, enhanced with touches of magical realism from her ever-present imagination, a shocking revelation from the past threatens to uproot the pair’s tender relationship.”
