Sat, Jan 19

The fanciful world of anime and the realities of juggling a family collide in this 2019 Golden Globe–nominated feature. The film follows four-year-old Kun, who gets a rude shock when his parents bring home a new baby sister (Mirai). But when a teenage Mirai turns up from the future, Kun must come to terms with her place in the family. Reviews say parents will enjoy it just as much as kids, so perhaps a family outing is in order. SIFF Uptown Cinema, $10

Written for Broadway babies Mary Martin (Sound of Music) and Robert Preston (Music Man), this two-person production has the energy of an ensemble musical with a score to match. Village Theatre, $69–$74
