Cutie and the Boxer

Cutie and the Boxer

USA, 2013, 82 Minute Running Time

ENDS THURSDAY.
Nominated for the Best Documentary Academy Award.


Once a rising star in the ‘70s New York art scene, 80-year-old “boxing” painter Ushio Shinohara hopes to reinvigorate his career as he preps for his latest show. His wife, and de facto assistant, Noriko, seeks her own recognition through her “Cutie” illustrations, which depict their chaotic, yet sustained, 40-year marriage. Heinzerling’s camera captures the Brooklyn-based couple at home and at work, combining candid vérité scenes, archival footage and charming animated sequences of Noriko’s drawings. Cuite and the Boxer captures two lives united by a dedication to art-making for a touching meditation on the eternal themes of love and sacrifice.
