From acclaimed filmmaker Mamoru Hosoda, Wolf Children is about Hana, a young woman whose whirlwind romance takes an unexpected turn when she learns her boyfriend is part-wolf. Nonetheless, the two grow closer and soon add two half-wolf children to their family. When the children’s father is suddenly taken from them, Hana must deal with the challenges that come when her begin growing fur and tearing up the furniture. Brimming with Hosoda’s trademark visual splendor, Wolf Children is his most emotionally resonant film to date – a beautiful story about acceptance and growing up.
