When I Grow Up, I Am Going To Share A Bunk Bed With My Nephew

White On Rice looks like a very funny movie. It stars Hiroshi Watanabe (he played a lieutenant in Letters from Iwo Jima—what a type-casting!) as Jimmy, a 40-year-old divorcee who moves in with his sister and shares a bunk bed with his 10-year-old nephew. He’s socially awkward, his coworkers think he’s strange and people recognize him from his past “acting” work in cheesy kung-fu B-movies. And if that wasn’t enough (a word Hollywood has never heard before), he has a crush on his brother-in-law’s twentysomething niece.
