Four-year-old Kun is growing jealous of the attention that his parents are affording to his new little sister, Mirai. Lashing out and running away, Kun wanders into a garden where he eventually comes face to face with his mother – except she’s a little girl again.
As it turns out, the magical garden is actually a time-traveling gateway where Kun encounters various family members at different stages in their lives, giving him a whole new perspective on the world.
Continuing Studio Chizu’s exploration into time-travel – following on from 2006’s wonderful The Girl Who Leapt Through Time – Mirai is a profound portrayal of a child’s perspective of the word, and a delightful enlightening film for both children and adults alike.
Oscar nominee in 2019 for Best Animated Feature Film.

After the love of his life, the titular Mandy (Andrea Riseborough), is taken from her tranquil home in the woods and murdered in a satanic ritual by a roaming hippie cult, Red (Nicolas Cage) forges a badass axe and heads out for revenge.
Mandy sees Cage in his now standard, full-crazy mode – in the rare movie where it works. A deliberately paper-thin plot lets Mandy focus purely on breathing a wild, drug-induced vibe to life through mind-bending sound and vision. Mandy is a macabre work of art that demands to be experienced on the big screen.
