Kun’s parents come home with an addition to the family. The four-year-old’s joie de vivre is replaced by dour disappointment when his little sister demands every bit of attention. But things start to improve when he encounters a gateway to a magic garden in which he can travel through time and meet his relatives at different points in their lives. From then on, anything is possible. Children and open-minded adults alike will revel in this spectacular animated film, and marvel at director Mamoru Hosoda’s unique talent to infuse the animated world with heaps of fantasy. Variety magazine described Mirai as a simple, unpretentious—and perhaps the most intimate—film by one of the world’s leading Anime masters.
