Featured Film:

Last Letter at the Pacific Place

We started Seattle Screen Scene almost four years ago because we discovered that there were a bunch of movies we really wanted to see playing in multiplexes around town. Specifically, there were Johnnie To and Tsui Hark movies playing at the Pacific Place with absolutely no press or coverage in the media, social or otherwise. Every week I go through the listings of every theatre in town hoping to find similar gems that we can review and highlight. This week, it’s Last Letter, the latest film from Japanese director Shunji Iwai (A Bride for Rip van Winkle, All About Lily Chou-Chou). It’s his first film made in China, and stars Zhou Xun (from last year’s Our Time Will Come). Like his previous Love Letter and Chang-ok’s Letter, it’s about the disappointments of life and the loves of youth, about discovering people through stories, stories told in letters. A cross-generational film about love and coping with the loss of a loved one, it’s one of the finest films to hit Seattle Screens this year and it deserves an audience. Don’t miss it.
