The highly-anticipated new film from director Makoto Shinkai and producer Genki Kawamura, the creative team behind the critically-acclaimed, global smash hit YOUR NAME.

The summer of his high school freshman year, Hodaka runs away from his remote island home to Tokyo, and quickly finds himself pushed to his financial and personal limits. The weather is unusually gloomy and rainy every day, as if to suggest his future. He lives his days in isolation, but finally finds work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine. Then one day, Hodaka meets Hina on a busy street corner. This bright and strong-willed girl possesses a strange and wonderful ability: the power to stop the rain and clear the sky…

"Vividly contemporary-not an archetypal fable, but rather a compelling yarn about young people trying to live and love in an often hostile world of grown-ups." - The Atlantic

"Shinkai... has created another world to lose yourself in." - Times

"A perfect entry point for animation fans who are still looking for the next big Pixar or Hayao Miyazaki." -

"Shinkai's sensitive treatment of these real-world problems gives the fantasy of WEATHERING WITH YOU a thought-provoking edge many more lavish American animated films lack." - Los Angeles Times

"Another essential slice of thumping, bittersweet genius from one of Japan's great modern anime auteurs." - Flickering Myth

"WEATHERING WITH YOU also explores the myriad effects of climate change on our industrialized society, but I think its message is one of simultaneous resignedness and hope." - Pajiba

"This is anime remixed with romance and rock opera ballads - much more of a confection than a social critique. WEATHERING WITH YOU is a typhoon-infused fantasy grounded in a tangible reality." - Film Inquiry
