MEET STAR TAKASHI YAMAGUCHI IN PERSON
Set in a small Southern US town in the autumn of 1941, Sophie’s life is transformed when an Asian man arrives under mysterious circumstances. Their love affair becomes the lightning rod for long buried conflicts that erupt in bigotry and violence, threatening Mr. Ohta’s life. A trio of women, each with her own secrets- Sophie, along with the town matriarch and her housekeeper- reject law and propriety, risking their lives to save him. Director Maggie Greenwald (The Ballad of Little Jo, Songcatcher) returns with an elegant historical drama and moving love story. The film stars Julianne Nicholson, Margo Martindale, Lorraine Toussaint and Diane Ladd, and introduces audiences to Takashi Yamaguchi.
