Setsuko (Shinobu Terajima, also in this year’s DEAR ETRANGER) is a middle-aged, lonely, chain-smoking office lady with not much in the way of a social life. But when her niece convinces her to take an English class, she discovers a new identity as her American alter-ego ‘Lucy’, befriending her ‘classmate’ (Koji Yakusho) and maybe falling for her hunky instructor John (Josh Hartnett)....But When John suddenly disappears along with her niece, Setsuko and her straight-laced sister take off across the globe to sunny California to find them. Unfortunately things may be more complicated than they appeared.
Part black comedy, part romance, part family drama, OH LUCY! is a hilarious, touching, and heart-breaking road movie about love, loneliness and connection. Director Atsuko Hirayanagi proves she’s one to watch in her feature debut (OH LUCY is expanded from a short film of the same name), and actress Shinobu Terajima shines in one of the best roles of her career. Straight from the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, OH LUCY! is a must-see at HIFF 2017!
