August at Akiko’s is a film that takes place in Hawaii. Variety called it Cool and calming as a summer sea breeze. In other words, it is perfect for this moment. Here is the trailer. Akiko’s Buddhist Bed and Breakfast appears to be a real place, too. One day, I will stay there. I saw the film last week and still often think about it. For me good films have an aftertaste, a lingering quality, a scent that remains… Enjoy!
