Akira Tachibana is a soft-spoken high school student who used to be a part of the track and field club but, due to an injury, she is no longer able to run as fast as she once could. Working part-time at a family restaurant as a recourse, she finds herself inexplicably falling in love with her manager, a divorced 45-year-old man with a young son.

I kinda waited for this, since I do watch the anime. And it is as slow paced as it's anime counterpart. Best to watch this after watching or doing something that pumps your adrenaline and need to cool down. The story itself is nice but rather plain. If that's not your cup of tea, then I suggest that you avoid this one. The premises of the age-gap romance wasn't, the main theme here. It is more like the steps you take to find your way back. The leads are great. Although I think the side characters are the ones who added the flavour in this movie. Overall, watch this if you want to see the shortened version of the anime or you just need some inspirations.

Please keep in mind that my Overall Score is based on how I feel after viewing and not an average of each score. I thought the acting from the leads were decent as this is my first time seeing a work from both Komatsu Nana and Oizumi Yo. The OST caught my attention quite well and the overall screenplay was pretty decent (but not without a bit of pacing problems) for a live-action adaptation. This is gonna get a bit personal but anyway.. I haven't seen the anime for this yet but I can say that I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.

This isn't really a review, it's moreso a critical response so bear with me.

Some of you may be turned off by the age gap romance but it's not the main premise at all. It's about people struggling to find a way back on track with the things they enjoy doing and I really resonated with that - albeit with different circumstances. Back in high school, I ran track and field - 100m sprints to be specific. I loved the adrenaline coursing through my veins, the sound of the gun going off, and the wind on my face as I cut through the track. However, I never came first. I was always 2nd, 3rd, etc and sometimes even last in my heat. All I could do was watch as my peers and rivals got better and better. Despite that, I kept striving to improve because I loved the sport.. until one day. I suddenly thought maybe I wasn't cut out for this, I was fed up with my results - angry at myself because I couldn't get better. Maybe because it was my graduating year that I was forced by my parents to focus on what I'd be doing post-secondary or maybe I was just making excuses trying to think of a way out the embarrassment and disappointment.. so I stopped trying and I just gave up. I didn't have the courage to carry on, just like a lot of the things that I tried to do after. I half-assed everything. I became easily discouraged and self-loathing. Now I'm 23, working a job that I don't enjoy, struggling to get back on track with things I'm passionate about - hell I'm struggling to figure out what my passions truly lie. Watching the characters in this movie interact with each other and how they go about their daily lives made me reflect on many things and also made me think back to the challenges I faced when I ran.
