Part of Film series Intimate Epics
Directed by Ryusuke Hamaguchi | 2015

With Sachie Tanaka, Hazuki Kikuchi, Maiko Mihara

“a tour de force of controlled cinematic energy”
—The New Yorker

Although his recent Academy Award-winning success with Drive My Car introduced Ryusuke Hamaguchi to many American audiences, the Japanese director’s career is marked by almost two decades of piercing observation and quietly ferocious drama. Foremost among his work is Happy Hour, which earns every minute of its five hour run time. Following four female thirty-something friends on a trip to the seaside, this slow-burn drama renders the pain and promise of friendship, marriage, and midlife awakening in exquisite detail—and includes several unforgettable set pieces that could only exist in such a monumental work.
