Early 20th-century educator, editor and journalist Leonie Gilmour (Emily Mortimer) was instrumental in nurturing the talents of her son, Isamu Noguchi, who would become the world-renowned sculptor and architect. There are interesting scenes of her time as a kind of proto-gaijin in Japan in this well made film, which is a cut above most things in this vein. It’s a sweeping saga of a pioneering, cross-cultural feminist, but you’re going to have to really be into sweeping sagas of pioneering, cross-cultural feminists to get through this, as it’s a bit of a slog in spots and runs to two-and-a-quarter hours.
