Mirai ★★★½

Probably one of Mamoru Hosoda’s lighter works. A bit disjointed in the way it presented its conflicts like mini episodes - think of it as ‘My Neighbour Totoro’’ wrapped in ‘A Christmas Carol’-like storyline - but ‘MIRAI’ is a sweet, funny, and emotionally affecting movie about childhood and how we change as we grow up. The hand-drawn animation is beautiful!
