Asako I & II

March 22-24, 7:30 p.m.

Asako meets the dreamy Baku at a photography exhibition and is instantly smitten with the charismatic, devil-may-care young man. He reciprocates those feelings, or at least appears to do so. Asako's friends aren't so sure about her new boyfriend; some say he's a noted heartbreaker. But Asako is deeply infatuated. Who knows how Baku feels? One day he simply disappears, and Asako is left with nothing but memories and longing. A few years later, Asako spots Baku. But is it him? The man she meets is quieter, less exciting and says his name is Ryôhei, but she could swear it's her Baku. Director Ryūsuke Hamaguchi adapted Tomoka Shibaski's novel for the film Asako I & II, which flips the manic-pixie dreamgirl trope on its head. The Webster Film Series presents the strange romance at 7:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday (March 22 to 24) at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 Edgar Road; www.webster.edu/film-series). Tickets are $5 to $7. Check out our full review in the film section. $5-$7
