new white on rice trailer

I've mentioned David Boyle's indie comedy White on Rice here throughout its festival run, but I thought post about it again, since a new trailer recently popped up on Apple. Here's the film's official description:
Jimmy (Hiroshi Watanabe, LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA) loves dinosaurs and sleeps on the top bunk. Unfortunately, Jimmy is 40, and shares the bunk bed with Bob, his 10-year-old nephew. Freshly divorced, Jimmy has moved in with his sister Aiko and her family while boldly searching for a new wife. His brother in-law, Tak, thinks he's a disaster. And although Jimmy may lack social grace, he is convinced the best years of his life are just beginning. His plan seems like it's all falling into place when Tak's beautiful niece Ramona moves in. But once Jimmy sets his sights on her, he finds he has competition from his handsome co-worker Tim (James Kyson Lee, HEROES), and his intentions begin to go hilariously awry.
If this is your first time hearing about the film, believe me, it's as weird and quirky as the trailer indicates. Hiroshi Watanabe is kind of brilliant as one of the most annoying and unlikeable heroes you'll ever find yourself rooting for. To learn more about the movie, visit the White on Rice website here.
