Mirai (2018): Movie Review

Nominated for best animated feature at the Oscars, Mirai tells the story of a boy adjusting to a new little sister and loosing the constant attention from his parents he always knew. As he acts out, he meets members of his family including the human version of his dog, his little sister from the future, and his motorcycle loving great-grandfather. Beautifully crafted, smart and funny, Mirai (meaning “Future” in Japanese) explores childhood changes and family togetherness (and contention) in one of the best animes in years.

For Seattle, the GKIDS release from Mamoru Hosoda (Wold Children) is at SIFF Film Center in Seattle Center this weekend and at Grand Illusion in a few weeks.
