"My darling is a foreigner"

Last night I went to the movies with Jeff and Aya to see Sherlock Holmes. As some of you readers back in the States know, I LOVE Sherlock Holmes. I read my first Holmes mystery when I was about 11 and have loved him ever since. So I was super excited to see this movie, especially since I have been waiting since I first saw the posters in the theater back in December.
The movie was great - a modern day take on a classic hero. Of course, some creative liberties were taken to make Sherlock Holmes popular with a modern audience, but I expected that. I thought it was well-made and funny too. So I recommend it.
But the actual topic of this post is something Jeff spotted in the lobby before we went into the movie theater:

That's right. My darling is a foreigner - a new movie coming out soon. I can't really read the Japanese inside this little booklet, but it seems that she is a manga writer who falls in love with an American and the movie follows them through all the ups and downs of their international relationship. But in a cute Japanese-y way.
You can check out the website here and watch the trailer. Even though it's in Japanese, you can get the general idea.

BRI! How the heck are you? So... I may have been a bad friend and totally lost touch. And it looks like you've become 90% Japanese. Congratulations! I hope you're having a great time! Send me an email sometime!

PS. I thought of you today when I heard "Blinded by the light! Wrapped up like a douche" Hahaha...
