While I’m not going to complain about covering major blockbusters or even smaller films with big name stars, I’m always happy when we can do a story about true independent films that hopefully will find their audience.  Today, I get to do a little of that by debuting an exclusive clip from the upcoming comedy “White on Rice” starring Hiroshi Watanabe, James Kyson Lee, Mio Takada, and Lynn Chen.  Check out the clip after the jump and if you live in Los Angeles or Orange County, you can see it when it begins its theatrical release on September 11th.

For those tuning in, here’a a synopsis for the film:

Director Dave Boyle (“Big Dreams Little Tokyo”) returns with WHITE ON RICE, the comedic story of Jimmy (Hiroshi Watanabe, “Letters from Iwo Jima”), a misguided 40-year-old divorceé trying to navigate his way through a new life in America and out of his sister Aiko’s (Japanese Academy Award winner Nae) basement.  Disgraced by his disgruntled brother-in-law Tak (Mio Takada, “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”), the immature yet adorable Jimmy spends his nights searching for a new wife who shares his love of dinosaurs and geology.  Things go horribly wrong when Jimmy falls desperately in love with Tak’s niece, the beautiful Ramona (Lynn Chen, “Saving Face”), and vows to steal her away from his co-worker Tim (James Kyson Lee, “Heroes”).   Meanwhile, Bob, Jimmy’s nephew and bunk bed-mate (newcomer Justin Kwong) harbors a secret talent that holds the key to rekindling the passion in his parents’ marriage.  Hilarious and heartwarming, WHITE ON RICE is a Japanese-American comic treat.
