Your Name (Japanese) Film Poster


Written and directed by the supremely talented Makoto Shinkai, this achingly beautiful tale of adolescent angst and yearning begins life as a Freaky Friday-style YA adventure, and then takes off into the stratosphere. The focus is on a pair of high-schoolers who share a mysterious, seemingly inexplicable connection. They've never met and live miles apart, but somehow Tokyo lad Taki and frustrated, small-town girl Mitsuha are able to drop into each other's lives while dreaming. Gradually they grow closer, yet for how long can this remarkable double life last? A bewitching, heart-wrenching body-swap romance that simply has to be seen. In Japanese with English subtitles.
