In the latest movie from stop-motion animation studio Laika, a young boy named Kubo must locate a magical suit of armor worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit from the past. Inspired by Japanese folklore, the film features gorgeously handcrafted origami creations to tell its tale. “Attentive cinephiles may detect echoes of the samurai epics of Akira Kurosawa and the children’s adventure sagas of Hayao Miyazaki, which is not to suggest that this English-language movie is exclusively Eastern in either its appeal or its range of references.” (Justin Chang, LA Times) Recommended for ages 8+
