The KITE Trailer is Now Out

I personally classify Kite as hentai. But that's just my personal opinion. Still it's a visual and storytelling masterpiece and has been cited by a lot of Hollywood types including Quintin Tarantino.

The film stars lead actress India Eisley (The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Underworld: Awakening, Maleficent) and and Callan McAuliffe (I Am Number Four, New Director). The Deadline website describes the project as "a character-driven action film that charts the story of Sawa (Eisley), a young woman living in a failed state after the financial collapse, where a corrupt security force profits on the trafficking of young women. When Sawa's policeman father is killed, she vows to track the murderer down with the help of his ex-partner, Karl Aker (Jackson)."

The synopsis for the Western adaptation (not the Yasuomi Umetsu directed OVA) alone is already telling us that a lot of things were swept under the rug including the constant sexual abuse that Sawa experiences at the hands of her guardian/ handler.

The violence is still there though as well as the exploding bullets that's basically Sawa's M.O. Seriously, wrapping this up as an action film takes out like half the fun (or agitation) IMHO.
