A gorgeously animated film that's true to life
26 August 2018 | by belxxSee all my reviews

From the eyes of a four year old boy, Mirai captures the sweet innocence and wild imagination of a child that will sweep away adults and children alike. If you're a fan of Hosoda's previous films, this is something you won't want to miss!
