Summer Wars

Mamoru Hosoda's wildly visionary anime borrows elements of Tron, WarGames and Avatar and folds them into today's hyperlinked online culture. The story concerns a teen math whiz who unwittingly unleashes a malicious computer program. As a result, he, his friends and his family must dive into the virtual world of an MMORPG to do battle in avatar form. The mix of hand-drawn and CGI imagery give this film a distinct and decidedly quirky look. A new cult fave. 114 minutes PG.
