The Workhorse and The Bigmouth ★★★★

A reasonably thoughtful film about dreams and whether or not you have the talent to achieve them. But you might not notice, based on the characters. One is a sort of Jeff Spicoli spinoff, without the drugs. The rest are typical Japanese style losers who appeal to one another so things are happy. Kumiko Aso is splendid, as usual, but if you dislike her plain jane low key acting you may not connect.
