Thought “Savannah Smiles” and “SLC Punk” were the only flicks putting our backyard on the silver screen? As much as we love that brown-eyed girl and Salt Lake’s punk rock underbelly, it’s time we introduce the latest indie comedy film to come from Utah stock.
“White on Rice” has already debuted in L.A. and San Francisco, and now makes its way to our neck of the woods. Directed and co-directed by Utahns David and Megan Boyle, and starring Hiroshi Watanabe (“Letters from Iwo Jima”) and James Kyson Lee (“Heroes”), this comedy-that-could has been touted as “an Asian American film that keeps its identity in its heart rather than on its sleeve,” by The San Francisco Chronicle.
See it. Not only to show support for your peeps, because we know you like to laugh. Get started here or here. “White on Rice” is playing at Cinemark 16 at Provo Towne Center and Century 16 on 3300 South in Salt Lake City this Friday through October 1, with Q&A screenings this weekend only.
So, as they say, get on it.
