The Japan Society has secured a reduced price group booking to see this live-action take on Naoki Urasawa’s ace manga series which is densely plotted and rich in character. A major hit in Japan last year the film is inspired by the T-Rex song of almost the same name and follows a young man as he attempts to unravel the secret of the sinister conspiracy known as ‘Friend’. The globe-hopping plot builds up to a spectacular showdown on the eve of the new millennium - man vs machine against the backdrop of bustling Shinjuku!
