White on Rice

Uncovered Film Review

White on Rice Logo

White on Rice is the story of Jimmy (Hiroshi Watanabe), a man who leaves Japan after divorcing his wife, and moves in with his sister & her family in America. Jimmy was a minor extra in several samurai films in Japan, and longs to be a kid again. He isn't far from it... he ends up bunking with young cousin, Bob (Justin Kwong) until he's ready to get back on his feet. Despite having a steady job, Jimmy simply cannot please everyone.

This may seem like a depressing premise for a movie, but the fact is, Jimmy can't be knocked down. Despite his brother-in-law's spite for him, and his unrequited love for his momentary roommate Ramona (Lynn Chen), Jimmy manages to find ways to stay happy, even when everyone else is frustrated with him.

The acting in White on Rice is perfect... the cast was mostly brand new to me, and refreshing to see. I was smiling the entire time, and I do want to see more from all those involved, including the director, because this is a refreshing take on a frequently filmed topic.
