Manga Entertainment have announced that In This Corner of the World will be coming to our corner of the world very soon. With exclusive preview screenings taking place across the UK and Ireland on June 26th, the film will arrive in further select cinemas from June 28th.
Directed by Sunao Katabuchi of Mai Mai Miracle and Black Lagoon at studio MAPPA, known for Kids on the Slope, the film tells the story of the adolescent Suzu. In 1944, she moves to the small town of Kure in Hiroshima to live with her husband’s family, her life thrown into chaos when her town is bombed during World War II. Her perseverance and courage, however, underpin this heart-warming and inspirational tale of the everyday challenges faced by the Japanese in the midst of a violent, war-torn country.
