Will I Be Single Forever (12)
Mami is a writer in her thirties who shot to fame a decade prior when she published an essay on the value and happiness to be found in living as an independent woman. Though the essay gained her a mass readership, her more recent writing has not been successful. As she finds herself in this slump, she begins to worry about remaining single for the rest of her life. Meanwhile, three other women have gradually begun to doubt their own beliefs and lives. Based on a beloved comic, female director Fukuda Momoko helms this perceptive and sensitive depiction of the relatable lives of four women and their conflicted emotions, as they do their best to be happy in a Japanese society where singledom has been on the rise.
