The director of One Kine Day and the some of the cast were there for the first showing of the movie. In this photo from left to right is: the director Chuck Mitsui, Janel Parrish, Christa B. Allen, Ryan Greer, and Nalu Boersma.
The movie One Kine Day is about a teenage girl (Alea) who finds out that she is pregnant and her boyfriend Ralsto’s (Ryan Greer) journey to find the money to take care of the pregnancy. You follow Ralsto through a drug deal, cock fight, and a crazy party. The movie One Kine Day gives you a look into the lives of young adults.
The movie was well made and had a real sense of honesty. One Kine Day was made entirely in Hawaii on the Windward side of Oahu. It was amazing to find out that Ryan Greer who played Ralsto and Nalu Boersma who played Nalu had never acted before this movie; while both Christa B. Allen and Janel Parrish had been well known actors. One Kine Day is a wonderful depiction of how life is for some teenagers growing up.
At the end of movie the director Chuck Mitsui and some of the cast pictured above answered a few questions for the audience. The first question asked was of Mr. Mitsui. He was aksed how he came about writing the script for One Kine Day. In this short clip he discusses his journey of writing and directing One Kine Day.
