MAMORU HOSODA | JAPAN | 2021 | 121 MIN | PG | JAPANESE
From the celebrated Academy Award®-nominated director Mamoru Hosoda and Studio Chizu, creators of MIRAI, WOLF CHILDREN, SUMMER WARS, and more, comes a fantastical, heartfelt story of growing up in the age of social media.
Suzu is a shy, everyday high school student living in a rural village. For years, she has only been a shadow of herself. But when she enters “U”, a massive virtual world, she escapes into her online persona as Belle, a gorgeous and globally-beloved singer. One day, her concert is interrupted by a monstrous creature chased by vigilantes. As their hunt escalates, Suzu embarks on an emotional and epic quest to uncover the identity of this mysterious “beast” and to discover her true self in a world where you can be anyone.
Japanese cast for BELLE: Kaho Nakamura, Takeru Satoh, Toshiyuki Morikawa, Lilas Ikuta, Shōta Sometani, Ryō Narita, Tina Tamashiro, ermhoi (millennium parade)
