only the brave screening in san diego this weekend


Lane Nishikawa's World War II drama Only the Brave is currently on a city-by-city tour in support of the movie's recent release on DVD. Based on actual events, the film tells the story of the Japanese American 100th/442nd Regimental Combat Team, and stars Jason Scott Lee, Mark Dacascos, Tamilyn Tomita, Yuji Okumoto, Jeff Fahey, Guy Ecker and the late Pat Noriyuki Morita. Produced on a modest, independent budget, the film is one of those true labors of love.

For those of you in San Diego, catch special screenings of Only the Brave this Sunday, November 18 at 2pm and 6pm, at the Ultrastar Cinemas Mission Valley. Stars Tamlyn Tomita and Yuji Okumoto (it's a Karate Kid II reunion!) will be present to autograph DVDs. Tickets are $10 general, $8 for seniors, and free for U.S. Armed Forces veterans. Proceeds from the screening will benefit the San Diego Asian Film Festival, Japanese American Citizens League, Japan Society of San Diego and Tijuana, the Japanese American Historical Society of San Diego and the Buddhist Temple of San Diego.
