Synopsis

Leonie
Emily Mortimer stars in director Hisako Matsui's lavish period drama centering on the life story of Leonie Gilmour, an early 20th century literary editor whose troubled romance with celebrated Japanese poet Yone Noguchi resulted in the birth of famed artist Isamu Noguchi. A graduate of Philadelphia's Bryn Mawr College, Leonie (Mortimer) puts her dreams of becoming an editor aside when she accepts a job teaching at an all-girl's high school. When Leonie becomes an editor for dynamic Japanese poet Yone, their professional relationship quickly gives way to passion, and an unplanned pregnancy. Upon learning he will soon become a father, Yone hastily returns home to Japan. Fearing that their child will endure racial discrimination in America, Leonie, too, moves to Japan. There, despite a distinct lack of professional opportunities, the single mother raises a child who would grow into one of the great Japanese artists of his time. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
