Cutie and the Boxer
Fri, Sep 18, 2015 90 mins
The story of married artists Ushio and Noriko Shinohara, who met in the early 1970s when he was 41 and she was 19. In the following years, she put her ambitions on hold to act as his assistant and care for their son; and, though he's earned accolades for his work, financial success has eluded him—paying the rent is still, at times, a challenge. Noriko, for her part, is finally fulfilling her own (delayed) dreams via "Cutie and Bullie," a series of drawings that recount their life together.
