Ushio Shinohara is a painter with an unorthodox method; donning boxing gloves and goggles, he creates sprawling abstract canvases by punching paint onto them. While his work has a violent beauty, Ushio has remained relatively unknown despite decades living in New York City’s art scene. But as Ushio prepares for a major show, his long suffering wife Noriko revives her own of dreams of creating art and, eager to shed her role as her overbearing husband’s assistant, decides to begin working anew. A tender portrait of an enduring love, CUTIE AND THE BOXER is proof that it is never too late to find your voice.
