Shodo Girls!! (2010)

Shodo Girls!! is a Japanese movie directed by Ryuichi Inomata. It was released by Warner Bros. Japan on May 15, 2010.

This coming-of-age youth film is based on a true story and stars Riko Narumi as Satoko, a high school girl who is fed up with how her town has been declining. Shikokuchūō, Ehime was a major paper producing town, but the recession hit hard and almost all the stores and arcades downtown were shuttered.

Satoko is captain of her school’s calligraphy club and when she witnesses a substitute teacher named Ikezawa (Nobuaki Kaneko) painting calligraphy on a huge sheet of paper with an oversized brush, she’s transfixed. Soon, she’s inspired to put together a performance calligraphy tournament to revitalize her town.
