This was an excellent movie! My girlfriend and I love Studio Ghibli films and found this to be equal or better. The art was astounding! The story was great and original. The marketing team did an excellent job at promoting the film without giving out either of the two major plot twists that just blew everyone out of the water! Loved it! Go see it and support the studio in US theaters!

Taki and Mitsuha think they're dreaming, and after about the first 40 minutes of their shimmering film, you may think you are, too.
The day the stars fell, two lives changed forever. High schoolers Mitsuha and Taki are complete strangers living separate lives. But one night, they suddenly switch places. Mitsuha wakes up in Taki's body, and he in hers. This bizarre occurrence continues to happen randomly, and the two must adjust their lives around each other. Yet, somehow, it works. They build a connection and communicate by leaving notes, messages, and more importantly, an imprint. When a dazzling comet lights up the night's sky, something shifts, and they seek each other out wanting something more - a chance to finally meet.
