Weathering With You is the latest feature from Japanese filmmaker Makoto Shinkai and his studio CoMix Wave. It tells the story of a teenage runaway and a “sunshine girl” with the power to control weather. A chance encounter between them sets off a chain of events that could have profound implications for Tokyo’s future. The film had its main North American theatrical debut last week.
