Dir. Mamoru Hosoda. 2009, 114 mins. The story of a teen math prodigy who unwittingly unlocks a virtual world of avatars, this cyber-fantasy/sci-fi anime love story is a breathtaking tour of a visually brilliant alternate universe, and a clever parable about technology, family, and society. The winner of the Japan Academy prize for animation, Summer Wars confirms Hosoda’s place in the new generation of great anime directors. (Rated PG)
