| 1 h 21 min

This feature documentary is a portrait of "boxing" painter Ushio Shinohara and his wife and de facto assistant Noriko. Once a rising star in the '70's New York art scene, now 80-year-old Shinohara is prepping for his latest show, hoping to reinvigorate his career. By his side, Noriko seeks her own recognition through her "Cutie" illustrations, which depict their chaotic 40-year marriage. Cutie and the Boxer captures 2 lives united by a dedication to art-making and offers a touching meditation on the eternal themes of love and sacrifice.
