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 his baby sister, until one day he storms off into the garden, where he encounters strange guests from the past and future — including Mirai, as a teenager. Together, Kun and teenage Mirai 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 director Mamoru Hosoda's (SUMMER WARS, WOLF CHILDREN) career, MIRAI is a sumptuous, magical and emotionally soaring adventure of love passed down through generations about the ties that bring families together and make us who we are. (Note adapted from GKIDS Films.) DIR/SCR Mamoru Hosoda; PROD Yûichi Adachi, Takuya Itô, Genki Kawamura, Yûichirô Saitô. Japan, 2018, color, 98 min. RATED PG
