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.


Critic Reviews for Mirai

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (2)

It's the work of a true auteur (in what feels like his most personal film yet) presented as innocuous family entertainment.

A sweet child's-eye view of the world.

Even better, it's a rare animated flick you can have family discussions about afterwards, rather just reminisce together about the best gags.

Animation has the unique ability to present surrealism to kids... It's great to see Mirai keeping this tradition alive and with purpose...

Mirai is designed and animated to the highest standards of the perennially popular school and is accompanied by a gentle, attractive music score.

Hosoda has an eye for realistic details, from the sombre expression on baby Mirai's face to the way Kun sleeps (there's a reason why yoga has a Child's Pose).
