About the Pink Sky ももいろそらを (KOBAYASHI Keiichi 小林啓一/2011/Black & White/113min)

High school student Izumi, whose daily routine is rating newspaper articles based on her criteria of positivity, finds a wallet containing a large sum of cash. Instead of returning it, she lends a substantial portion of the contents to a financially-struggling male acquaintance. Izumi eventually gives the lost property back to its owner, a wealthy peer named Sato who notices the missing money. As compensation, she reluctantly agrees to help him console a hospitalised friend by creating a newspaper that brings joy to readers.

In his feature debut, director Keiichi Kobayashi spins a serene coming-of-age tale that owes its underlying energy to the young cast―all of them newcomers―who show a veteran finesse for navigating quirky humour, teenage indecision and subtle shifts in adolescent consciousness.
