The complex, sometimes fraught relationship between older and younger siblings is mapped with kindness, imagination, and wit in Mirai – Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter
From acclaimed director Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars, Wolf Children, Digimon: The Movie) and Japan’s Studio Chizu comes Mirai, a daringly original story of love passed down through generations. 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, making Kun rife with jealousy … until one day he storms off into the garden and encounters strange guests from the past and future – including his sister Mirai, as a teenager. Together, they go on a journey through time and space, uncovering their family’s incredible story. An official selection at Cannes Directors’ Fortnight and the epic capstone of Hosoda’s career, Mirai is a sumptuous, magical, and emotionally soaring adventure about the ties that bring families together and make us who we are.
