Academy Award nominee Rinko Kikuchi (Babel) stars as Kumiko, a disenchanted Office Lady whose imagination transcends the confines of her mundane life. Mistaking a mysterious, battered VHS tape of Fargo for a documentary, melancholy Kumiko believe there is a buried suitcase full of money in North Dakota. She leaves Tokyo behind, embarking on a dangerous adventure to recover the treasure. “A strange and sad character portrait of a lonely dreamer on a quest, it is also like two films in one: the funny, but oppressive Japanese first half and the second, set in a wintry American wonderland that’s more whimsical for all its seeming atmospheric solemnity. The evocative sonic qualities brilliantly blurring the line between music and sound design.” The Playlist

“Director James Marsh takes an unremarkable, chronological approach to the life of cosmologist Stephen Hawking…a man whose state of being is irony itself – a mind that takes wings through the universe and time, while trapped in an atrophied, immobile body. Marsh (Man On Wire) makes no overt artistic statements in chronicling Hawking’s life from brash, athletic young prodigy at Oxford to latter-day Einstein, struggling against the confinement and ostensible death sentence of ALS (both lives connected by the love of a good woman, Hawking’s now ex-wife Jane). As hawking, Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables) performs with the precison of an athlete – having used a choreographer to help him achieve the exact level of physicality demanded by each stage and infirmity of Hawking’s life.” Toronto Sun
