MKE Film Festival

Suzu, a shy, ordinary high school student living in a rural village, begins exploring “U,” a massive virtual world where she escapes into an online persona she’s created called Belle, a globally-beloved singer. When her concert is interrupted by a monstrous creature who captivates Suzu’s curiosity, she embarks to uncover the identity of the “beast,” and discovers her true self in a world where you can be anyone. Dive into this visually captivating and emotionally raw take on a tale as old as time, created by Academy Award-nominated Mamoru Hosoda. Ages 13+.
