2010 Japanese movie

SYNOPSIS (wiki):
Sawako Kuronuma, called Sadako by her classmates for her resemblance to the character from The Ring, has always been feared and misunderstood because of her appearance. There are rumors that Sawako can see ghosts and curse people. However, despite her appearances, she is a sweet and timid girl who longs to be able to make friends with everyone and be liked by everyone else. When popular boy Kazehaya begins talking with her, everything changes. She finds herself in a new world, trying to make friends and talking to different people and she can't thank Kazehaya enough for giving her these opportunities. Slowly, but surely, a sweet love is blossoming between the two as they will overtake any circumstance or clear obstacles in their way.

Translation note: In the movie (and manga, apparently), there is a very important re-occurring word - "Sawayaku." It's the basis of her name, as well (the Sawa in Sawa-ko is the same word). It's a multi-faceted word, with a lot of connotations. Such as lively, gentle, fresh, refreshing, ect etc. Kinda...like the breeze during spring time? Anyways, I ended up translating it mostly as either refreshing + lively, or just lively....depending on the situation. If you are familiar with the manga and was wondering why the movie is a little different, it was a translation thing. When I was having trouble translating that part, I picked up the manga to see what they'd done, but....honestly, the phrase "100% freshness" was both awkward and confusing to me.
