Weathering With You

GKIDS proudly presents Weathering with You, the highly-anticipated new film from Makoto Shinkai.

The summer of his high school freshman year, Hodaka runs away from his remote island home to Tokyo and quickly finds himself pushed to his financial and personal limits. He lives his days in isolation but finally finds work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine. Then one day, Hodaka meets Hina 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!

Nominated for four Annie Awards, Weathering with You is another solid offering from the director of Your Name.

All screenings will be presented in the film’s original Japanese with English subtitles.


“Extremely beautiful in a very delicate way.” – Christy Lemire, FilmWeek

“Much as he did in Your Name, Shinkai creates a world where matters of the heart supersede all else, where reality dissolves into an isolated world that belongs only to the central lovers.” – Matthew Lucas, From the Front Row

“…an exercise in artistic prowess that reminds us how little power over the weather we actually have.” – Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm.com
