Movie based on manga about 11-year-old girl who gets pregnant
The CinemaCafe.net website is streaming a new trailer for Kōji Hagiuda's live-action film adaptation of Akira Saso's Kodomo no Kodomo (Child of a Child) manga. The manga (pictured at right) tells the story of an 11-year-old girl named Haruna who becomes unexpectedly pregnant. The actress playing Haruna is coincidentally named Haruna Amari; she makes her debut in this film after winning the auditions from among 400 candidates. The rest of the cast include other young performers (Kumiko Aso, Juri Ueno, Mitsuki Tanimura) and veterans (Yoshiko Miyazaki, Ken Mitsuishi). The film opens in Japan on September 27.
