A second trailer for White on Rice.

Director David Boyle ("Big Dreams Little Tokyo") returns with his sophomore effort, "White on Rice," the comedic story of Jimmy (Hiroshi Watanabe, "Letters from Iwo Jima"), a misguided 40-year-old divorcee trying to navigate his way through a new life in America and out of his sister Aiko's (Japanese Academy Award winner Yuuki Nae) basement. Disgraced by his disgruntled brother-in-law Tak (Mio Takada, "Late Night with Conan O'Brien"), the immature yet adorable Jimmy spends his nights in search of a new wife who shares his love of dinosaurs and geology. Things go horribly awry when Jimmy falls desperately in love with Tak's niece, the beautiful Ramona (Lynn Chen, "Saving Face"), and vows to steal her away from his co-worker Tim ("Heroes"' James Kyson Lee). Meanwhile, Bob, Jimmy's newphew and bunkbed mate, harbors a secret talent that holds the key to rekindling the passion in his parents marriage. Hilarious and heartwarming, "White on Rice" is a Japanese American comic treat for the whole family.
