The Films

Your Name

Makoto Shinkai | Japan | 106

Set on the eve of a rare cosmic event—the passing of a once-in-a-lifetime comet—two high school students, strangers living separate lives, suddenly switch places. Mitsuha wakes up in Taki’s body and he in hers. Communicating through scribbled notes and phone diaries, they muddle through each other’s lives in both frustrating and hilarious ways. What opens as a teen romance expands into a mystery touching upon Shinto rites and the supernatural. At its core, Your Name captures the longing for lost places and people, underscored by Shinkai’s gorgeous hyper-realist style indelibly etching Tokyo’s cityscape and the beauty of rural Japan—and the ubiquitous trains threading through them—into the viewer’s memory. The emotive soundtrack features music by the Japanese rock band Radwimps. Rated: PG


Madeline Sharafian | US | 6

If Anything Happens I Love You

Michael Govier & Will McCormack | US | 13

Erick Oh | South Korea, US | 9

Gísli Darri Halldórsson | Iceland | 9
