Mirai (PG)

Fantasy, Animation

Japanese animation fantasy in which a young boy called Kun discovers a portal that enables him to travel through time, allowing him to meet relatives from different eras.

The critical consensus

High concept, high emotions.

****(*)Michael Leader, Little White Lies, 01/11/2018

Even if the influence of Ghibli captain Hayao Miyazaki is unmistakable, Hosoda's playful mix of intimate truths and expansive wonders shows a generosity of spirit and sweep that's all his own.

****(*)Kevin Harley, The List, 29/10/2018

Tempering its flights of fancy with moments of whimsical humour and kid’s-eye realism, this thoughtful treatise on growing pains reveals a realist side of Japanimation that’s all too rarely seen.

****(*)David Parkinson, Empire Online, 01/11/2018

Its child’s-eye depiction of a toddler’s existential angst is inventively rendered with surreal flights of fancy that fall somewhere between Where the Wild Things Are, Inside Out and A Christmas Carol.
