Canadian Theatrical News: In this Corner of the World

Shout! Factory and Funimation are bringing Sunao Katabuchi, GENCO, and Mappa’s In this Corner of the World to select theatres in the United States and Canada this month. The film is based on Fumiyo Kōno’s 2007-2009 manga series of the same name. The movie opened in Japan last November. It proved to be a significant success both critically and financially, as the film raked in 10x its production budget and was nominated for many awards. Perhaps that love and the subject matter is behind that’s why it drew a non-typical Shout! Factory to license the movie.

The award-winning story of IN THIS CORNER OF THE WORLD follows a young lady named Suzu Urano, who in 1944 moves to the small town of Kure in Hiroshima to live with her husband’s family. Suzu’s life is thrown into chaos when her town is bombed during World War II. Her perseverance and courage underpin this heart-warming and inspirational tale of the everyday challenges faced by the Japanese in the midst of a violent, war-torn country. This beautiful yet poignant tale shows that even in the face of adversity and loss, people can come together and rebuild their lives.
