Flying Colors

[Japan Cuts Classic] June 2, 7 pm

Winner of the inaugural JAPAN CUTS Audience Award, the irresistible crowd-pleaser Flying Colors returns to Japan Society for an encore screening in anticipation of the upcoming 11th edition of JAPAN CUTS. Based on an inspiring true story, this smash-hit comedic drama stars Kasumi Arimura as a ditzy high school material girl who is unexpectedly encouraged by an overly-optimistic and unconventional cram school teacher to apply for admission to one of the toughest universities in Japan. Full of heart and big laughs, Flying Colors could easily be considered Japan's winking response to Legally Blonde.
