Enjoyable especially if you need a little boost to your day.

Beautiful, Enjoyable Film with Feminist Undertones .

The lead actress is stunning and the child who plays her daughter is delightful.

Really good acting, movie certainly made our day, one of the most enjoyable sleepers we've seen in a long time.

Beautiful sushi and watching it being made was fascinating.

A cute movie but would not watch again because it's so predictable.

I really enjoyed it and was engaged the whole time; it went by really fast.

Normally this is the kind of movie I wouldn't watch or skip over after a few minutes but this has a compelling and different storyline that is wonderful to watch.

This was a completely enjoyable movie.

It can be more exciting.

boring ending though

This independent family drama takes a creative and colorful, tasteful look at trying to break cultural barriers in the fascinating sushi making field.

The plot is very predictable, the actings are mediocre at best, some moments are too cringy to watch, the dialogues are very bland and all the characters are very one dimensional.

For such a simple plot, there was no balance in the visual treatment, to make it more engaging as a film.

I really like this film but it is just a little bit slow.

The movie starts a little slow but is totally worth the watch and I would recommend watching this with your daughter and discussing equal pay, gender discrimination, and diversity once it's over.

These are the types of movies that's worth watching; real-life conversations and stories people can relate and be inspired to.

There was no real concrete establishment of any character, location or emotion at all- at times it is frustratingly slow.

An enjoyable feel-good fantasy.

It can be a bit more exciting in the drama and pacing.
