Movie Night: Asako I & II

Tuesday, August 16, 2022
6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Petty Auditorium

Before winning Best International Film at this year's Oscars, director Ryûsuke Hamaguchi was quietly creating films exploring youth, romance, and modern Japan.

One of his best early films, Asako I & II keeps the youth and romance while adding a compelling dash of mystery and even fable to the story. A quiet gem. In Japanese with English subtitles.

2018 -- 119 minutes -- Not Rated -- Drama/Romance

We will watch the film in the auditorium, followed by a brief discussion in the Radmacher Room. All participants must follow the library's pandemic safety guidance.

Find Asako I & II in the library catalog.
