From acclaimed director Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars, Wolf Children) and Japans 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 Kuns 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 familys incredible story. But why did Mirai come from the future?
Continuing to cement his status among Japans 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.
An official selection at Cannes Directors Fortnight, and the epic capstone of director Mamoru Hosodas career, Mirai is a sumptuous, magical, and emotionally soaring adventure about the ties that bring families together and make us who we are.
A beguilingly sweet-natured little gem
a work of heart-swelling beauty and considerable charm.
