“…an achingly beautiful meditation on loneliness.”
—Maggie Lee, The Hollywood Reporter

She’s no Pinocchio, but when an inflatable sex doll leaves her middle-aged owner, she sets out to experience the world, her heart open and ready for love. Getting a job in a video store, she encounters the intricacies of human connection with awe and wonder in this modern day fable from Hirokazu Kore-eda (SHOPLIFTERS).  Adapted from the manga by Yoshiie Goda and featuring breathtaking cinematography from Mark Lee Ping-Bing (IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE), the criminally underseen AIR DOLL is “one of those films that can haunt viewers long after they’ve left the theater” (NPR).
