Filmmaker Mamoru Hosoda’s (Summer Wars, Wolf Children) latest film Mirai has received its share of praise, and for the English version of this Japanese flick he’s enlisted the voices of John Cho, Rebecca Hall, and Daniel Dae Kim.
The narrative centers on Kun (Jaden Waldman), a 4-year-old who feels left out after the birth of his sister Mirai (Victoria Grace). With his mother (Hall) off to work and his dad (Cho) struggling to run the household, Kun is trying to find his own way through the world. In his family garden Kun encounters his sister Mirai, who’s know a teenager, and she takes him on a journey that enables him to experience his family through different parts on their own lives. An official selection at Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, Mirai hits select theaters November 30. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
