Soda Pictures are pleased to release the trailer for the forthcoming Kumiko The Treasure Hunter starring Academy Award nominee Rinko Kikuchi as the eponymous heroine of the film.
Kumiko is a disillusioned soul in a city of 35 million people. She works in a dead end job that makes her unhappy and unappreciated, has a nagging mother and successful peers.
Yet while living alone she watches a copy of an American independent film. Night after night she watches the film for clues as to where the stash of money in the film has been buried, with the belief that the film is a real document. So begins Kumiko's journey to America to find her treasure in this beguiling and equally bizarre tale.
Written and directed by the Zellner Brothers and produced by Alexander Payne (a director not adverse to films about journeys); the film looks like one of those rare breakout independent films due to the original content, eccentric lead performances and brilliant screenplay.
Kumiko the Treasure Hunter is released in UK cinemas on Friday 20th February from Soda Pictures
