SUMMER WARS

Timid math genius Kenji has been asked away for a summer job with the school idol Natsuki, but his crush gets complicated when he finds out he's to pretend to be her boyfriend! Meanwhile, what can Kenji and his new family do about the bizarre hacks in the online world of "OZ", which is bringing the real world to a grinding halt and perhaps its end!?

 

YOUR NAME

Mitsuha and Taki are two total strangers living completely different lives. But when Mitsuha makes a wish to leave her mountain town for the bustling city of Tokyo, they become connected in a bizarre way. She dreams she is a boy living in Tokyo while Taki dreams he is a girl from a rural town he?s never been to.

What does their newfound connection mean? And how will it bring them together?


 

A SILENT VOICE

Shoya Ishida starts bullying the new girl in class, Shoko Nishimiya, because she is deaf. But as the teasing continues, the rest of the class starts to turn on Shoya for his lack of compassion. When they leave elementary school, Shoko and Shoya do not speak to each other again... until an older, wiser Shoya, tormented by his past behaviour, decides he must see Shoko once more. He wants to atone for his sins, but is it already too late??

 

WOLF CHILDREN

A staggeringly beautiful animated feature film from director Mamoru Hosoda (SUMMER WARS). This epic cinematic achievement follows Hana, a woman who falls in love with a Wolf Man and gives birth to two half human, half wolf children. After the tragic death of her beloved, Hana seeks refuge in rural town where she attempts to build a life for herself - and her children.

 

THE GIRL WHO LEAPT THROUGH TIME

When 17-year-old Makoto Konno gains the ability to, quite literally, "leap" backwards through time, she immediately sets about improving her grades and preventing personal mishaps. However, she soon realises that changing the past isn't as simple as it seems, and eventually, will have to rely on her new powers to shape the future of herself and her friends.
