Synopsis:

Director Dave Boyle (“Big Dreams Little Tokyo”) returns with WHITE ON RICE, the comedic story of Jimmy (Hiroshi Watanabe, “Letters from Iwo Jima”), a misguided 40-year-old divorceé trying to navigate his way through a new life in America and out of his sister Aiko’s (Japanese Academy Award winner Nae) basement.  Disgraced by his disgruntled brother-in-law Tak (Mio Takada, “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”), the immature yet adorable Jimmy spends his nights searching for a new wife who shares his love of dinosaurs and geology.  Things go horribly wrong when Jimmy falls desperately in love with Tak’s niece, the beautiful Ramona (Lynn Chen, “Saving Face”), and vows to steal her away from his co-worker Tim (James Kyson Lee, “Heroes”).   Meanwhile, Bob, Jimmy’s nephew and bunk bed-mate (newcomer Justin Kwong) harbors a secret talent that holds the key to rekindling the passion in his parents’ marriage.  Hilarious and heartwarming, WHITE ON RICE is a Japanese-American comic treat.

 

WHITE ON RICE is written and directed by Dave Boyle, produced by Duane Andersen, Dominic Fratto, and Michael Lerman, and starring Hiroshi Watanabe, James Kyson Lee, Mio Takada, and Lynn Chen.
