They call it the "Green Carpet" for Japan?

Surprised to see Shinzo Abe Lincoln at a film festival. I wonder if he really likes movies.

Captain Phillips is a great movie, by the way. Tom Hanks is in fine form here. Highly recommended.

Hanks has always been a good actor, and somewhat underrated, in my opinion.

Does Abe not have more pressing matters to deal with?
