A Bride for Rip Van Winkle

A Bride for Rip Van Winkle

Shunji Iwai, Japan

リップヴァンウィンクルの花嫁, 2016, 180 min, K-16

Modern isolation and technological disconnection get their timely treatment in Shunji Iwai’s masterful rollercoaster ride, experienced by young Nanami, as she moves through a budding and failing marriage to work as an assistant for a suicidal actress. Breakdown and remaking of a family have rarely got a juicier and more surprising treatment in a film.
