Hashimoto Ai & Miyazaki Aoi to act as mother-and-daughter in new movie "Birthday Card"

Hashimoto Ai and Miyazaki Aoi will be working together for the first time in the new movie "Birthday Card" which is due to be shown in cinemas from October this year. The film is an original story which features Hashimoto as the lead character Kiko who lost her mother Yoshie (Miyazaki) due to cancer at the age of 10. Despite so, Kiko receives a birthday card every year from Yoshie who had written them in advance as the latter could not live long enough to see her daughter grow up.

Filming of the movie took place last summer during which Hashimoto had given her views that it was unnatural for Kiko not to be rebellious during her teenager years. On the other hand, Miyazaki went on an intensive diet to look like Yoshie who was seriously ill and ended up being so weak that she couldn't even open a car door.

Co-stars include Yusuke Santa-Maria who plays Kiko's father while Suga Kenta plays her younger brother.
