Rinko Kikuchi Looks for Loot in 'Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter' Trailer
After landing a couple of Indie Spirit Award nominations for director David Zellner and star Rinko Kikuchi (Pacific Rim, Cloud Atlas), the indie drama Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter is coming to theaters in the spring, and the teaser trailer has arrived. Based on a true story, the film follows a woman who sets out on a journey to retrieve the briefcase full of money that was buried in the frozen ground in the Coen Brothers comedy Fargo. Due to the disclaimer at the beginning of the film calling it a true story (it's not), she's driven to find this treasure. It's quite a unique premise, and it looks like a real gem. Watch it!
Here's the teaser trailer for David Zellner's Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter, originally from Yahoo:
Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter is directed by David Zellner (Kid Thing, Goliath), who co-wrote the script with his brother Nathan Zellner (both appear in the film). Kumiko (Kikuchi) lives in a cluttered, cramped apartment in Tokyo with her pet rabbit, Bunzo. She works as an office lady, robotically preparing tea and fetching dry cleaning for her nitpicking boss. But on her own time, she obsessively watches a well-known American film on a weathered VHS tape. Rewinding and fast-forwarding repeatedly, she meticulously maps out where a briefcase of loot is buried. Convinced that her destiny depends on finding the money, Kumiko heads to the US to track it down. Amplify releases the film in theaters next spring on March 13th, 2015.

So, is this based on a true story, like Fargo, or like reality?

I believe this is a fictional story about a girl who thinks Fargo is real.

she doesn't star in Cloud Atlas... you've probably mistaken her with Doona Bae #justsaying
