Weathering with You
During the summer of his first year of high school, Hodaka (Kotaro Daigo) runs away from his remote island home to Tokyo, and he 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, he finds work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine. One day, Hodaka meets Hina (Nana Mori) 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.
Writer and director Makoto Shinkai (Your Name.) paints a torrential, dreamy Tokyo in his latest feature film. Released simultaneously with a novel and closely followed by a comic version, Weathering with You is a beautiful multimedia work.
