Mamoru Hosoda's acclaimed MIRAI returns to screens in English language, for a limited time!
Fresh off the back of the film’s recent Oscar nominations, acclaimed director Mamoru Hosoda’s (Summer Wars, Wolf Children) MIRAI, is returning to screens, but this time, in English language!
When four-year-old Kun meets his new baby sister, his world is turned upside down. Named Mirai (meaning “future”), the baby quickly wins the hearts of Kun’s entire family. As his mother returns to work, and his father struggles to run the household, Kun becomes increasingly jealous of baby Mirai… until one day he storms off into the garden, where he encounters strange guests from the past and future – including his sister Mirai, as a teenager. Together, Kun and teenage Mirai go on a journey through time and space, uncovering their family’s incredible story. But why did Mirai come from the future?
Continuing to cement his status among Japan’s best animation directors, Hosoda brings his trademark balance of gorgeous visuals and heartfelt emotion to this ingenious take on a highly relatable scenario – tenderly drawn from his own experiences as a father.
“A beguilingly sweet-natured little gem … a work of heart-swelling beauty and considerable charm.” – Screen Daily
