Aoi Miyazaki gets a cradle-robbing mother in upcoming film "Okan no Yomeiri"
by Chris MaGee
Cougar. MILF. Cradle-robber. There certainly are a lot of terms that fly around for women who end up romantically involved with a younger man, and regardless of what term people throw around this phenomena forms the center of an upcoming film titled "Okan no Yomeiri" starring Aoi Miyazaki (Shonen Merikansack, First Love). No, 24-year-old Miyazaki is not playing an over-sexed older woman. That honour goes to 52-year-old actress Shinobu Otake (above left) who play Miyazaki's mother in the film. The plot revolves around the conflict that occurs when Otake's single-mother character brings home a man over 20 years her junior and tells her daughter that they're getting married.
"Okan no Yomeiri" is set in Osaka and is currently being shot by director Mipo O. We'll have to wait until the fall to see how Miyazaki's character copes with this whole mess though. That's when the folks at Toei are aiming to release the film in Japanese theatres. Thanks to Tokyograph for this piece of news.
