The final film from Studio Ghibli master Miyazaki (Spirited Away) is a beautiful and bittersweet story that is a fitting swansong for the great director. Jiro dreams of flying and designing beautiful airplanes. Nearsighted from a young age and thus unable to become a pilot, he joins the aircraft division of a major Japanese engineering company in 1927. His genius is soon recognized, and he grows to become one of the world’s most accomplished airplane designers. The Wind Rises chronicles much of Jiro’s life, and depicts key historical events that deeply affected his path
