Rating:
PG-13
White on Rice is an affably offbeat indie comedy when Jimmy (Hiroshi Watanabe) -- a hapless 40-year-old divorcé who shares a bunk bed with his 10-year-old nephew (Justin Kwong) -- falls for his brother-in-law's charming niece, Ramona (Lynn Chen). Hoping to stage a romantic comeback, Jimmy plans an enchanting outing at a dinosaur park. Unfortunately, Ramona doesn't seem to be over her ex (James Kyson Lee), Jimmy's much cooler co-worker.
