Hirosue, Suzuki, Nakama, Tanaka & Takeuchi at "Flowers" premiere


From left: Actresses Ryoko Hirosue, 29, Kyoka Suzuki, 41, Yukie Nakama, 30, Lena Tanaka, 29, and Yuko Takeuchi, 30, attend a premiere for their new movie “Flowers” at Tokyo International Forum. The movie tells the story of six women whose lives span a period of three generations from the 1930s to present-day Japan. It opens on June 12.

"FLOWERS," which has been in the works since late 2008, was planned by creative director Takuya Onuki, whose works include the TSUBAKI commercials.

It begins in the 1930s with a woman named Rin Miyazawa (played by Yu Aoi), who is troubled by the marriage that her parents have arranged for her. Seeking freedom, she leaves the house on her wedding day, and later in life gives birth to three daughters. The oldest, Kaoru (Takeuchi), loses her husband in a car accident. The second, Midori (Tanaka), is a working woman who tries to decide between her job and a marriage proposal. The youngest, Sato (Nakama), is born with weak health and passes away after delivering her second child. Sato's daughters are played in the present day by Suzuki and Hirosue. 

If someone says "these are the last 5 dresses in the world" you must pick one..which one would you pick?
