Movie Info

Fathom Events and GKIDS bring MIRAI, a daringly original story of love passed down through generations from acclaimed director Mamoru Hosoda and Japan's Studio Chizu, to select theaters on November 29, December 5 and 8. 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 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 family's incredible story. The epic capstone of director Mamoru 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.

Audience Reviews for Mirai


What an awful voice they chose for Kun in the Japanese version (the voice of an 18-year-old girl), and yet more annoying for me is how condescending this film is towards children instead of speaking to them, with the result feeling more unfocused and banal than it should.
