LITTLEROCK is a powerfully intimate drama that captures the fears and desires of a young Japanese woman lost in America.
Rintaro (Rintaro Sawamoto) and Atsuko (Atsuko Okatsuka, who also co-wrote the script) are a Japanese brother and sister spending their summer traveling through the U.S. While on their way to San Francisco, their car breaks down in Littlerock, California, and they kill time with the local young drunks, touring the endless keggers that are the only entertainment in town. Atsuko speaks no English, and becomes the exotic center of attention in this isolated burg, deflecting advances by what seems like every available man in town. When love does come her way, she discovers that passion can be as fleeting as a visit abroad.
Directed by Mike Ott, LITTLEROCK is an affectingly authentic portrait of the bittersweet pain of young love and the cruel reality of cultural miscommunication, making it one of the most emotionally moving American Independents in recent memory.
