First-day-screening event of new movie "Kiseki - Ano Hi no Sobito -"

The first-day-screening event of new movie "Kiseki - Ano Hi no Sobito -" was held at Marunouchi TOEI 1 on 28 January which was attended by the director Kaneshige Atsushi and cast members Suda Masaki, Matsuzaka Toori, Kutsuna Shiori, Yokohama Ryusei, Narita Ryo, Sugino Yousuke and Taira Yuna. The movie is based on the true story of how GReeeeN's producer JIN and the members including his younger brother HIDE who is the leader come together to fulfill their music dream while coping with struggles and clashes with family and friends. About 500 fans gathered for the event and sang GReeeeN's song "Kiseki" as the cast made their way into the theatre.

When asked about the movie's theme of whether their families supported their dreams, Suda revealed that his father was very much in favour of him becoming an actor and even went to the extent of providing about 100 childhood photos of his with some featuring his father as well when a variety programme approached him for the photos to be featured during the show. On the other hand, Matsuzaka said that his father was strongly against his becoming an actor but seems to be supporting him quietly these days. As for his mother, she watches his every work and her comment about this latest movie was that Matsuzaka should stop acting "cool" on screen. As for Taira, she revealed that it was her mother and grandmother who sent her photo to the audition for the movie "Kiseki" directed by Koreeda Hirokazu when she was 11 years old and it so happened that the director Kaneshige was also involved in that movie. Upon hearing this, Suda jokingly commented that Taira should be nicknamed as a Kiseki actress i.e. miracle actress.
