Actress Aragaki Yui first challenged a mother role in the movie “Twilight Sasara Saya”. A showcase premiere was held last October 28 in Tokyo. The cast including Aragaki, Oizumi Yo, Nakamura Aoi, Komatsu Masao, Fuji Sumiko, and director Yoshihiro Fukagawa attended.
Arakagi was worried for the mother role and feels the image of Aragaki in school uniform is an easy image for others. Through the movie, co-starring with a newborn baby, she was able to smile and virtually experience with something similar to a mother’s feelings.
The trailer is out for a while, you can view it below.
