An ambitious exploration of the circle of life via a single family, Hosoda solidifies all his spellbinding elements – time leap, futuristic fantasy and familial affection into this magnificent tale, which centers on a 4-year-old boy who feels threatened by the arrival of a baby sister, Mirai. Things then turn magical when Mirai shows up as a teenage girl from the future, and takes him to a series of surprising adventures. Premiered in the Cannes Film Festival, Mirai affirms Hosoda as one of the most influential animation directors of our time.
