The Wind Rises

Acclaimed filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away) delivers a modern masterpiece with this Academy Award®-nominated exploration of creative passion in a hostile world.

Jiro Horikoshi is fascinated by aviation but unable to become a pilot due to a medical condition. He moves to Tokyo in 1923, surviving the Great Kanto Earthquake to become a highly accomplished airplane designer. As rumors of war escalate, Jiro reunites with Nahoko, a young woman he met during the earthquake years earlier. The two fall deeply in love, just as Nahoko falls ill with tuberculosis. Inspired by visions of Italian aeronaut Caproni, Jiro must confront mounting tragedies with dignity in this epic tale of love and perseverance.

An artistic tour de force in every sense, The Wind Rises also showcases the incredible voice talent of Joseph-Gordon Levitt, John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Martin Short, Stanley Tucci, Mandy Patinkin and William H. Macy.
