In this Corner of the World 10/24/17
Away from Hollywood’s stifling commercial limits, Sunao Katabuchi’s historical drama makes stunning use of animation. Fumiyo Kouno’s manga about a young bride in wartime Japan has no illusions regarding the human price of war. Young Suzu takes in a new family, endures the hardships of a militarized country and wartime privations, but nobody is ready for what’s coming. This show’s delicate art and brilliant storytelling stick with one, days later. It’s not for small children. A Dual-Format edition on Blu-ray and DVD from Shout Factory.
