1 / 9
It's an anime romance with a surprisingly upsetting ending.
2 / 9
Hina sacrifices herself to stop floods, but Hodaka saves her... and the floods continue.
3 / 9
This selfishness causing climate change is disturbing, but the movie plays it romantically.
4 / 9
This sort of dilemma feels better suited to horror, like Cabin in the Woods.
5 / 9

6 / 9
Weathering With You's constant product placement makes its potential anti-environmentalist subtexts suspect.
7 / 9
Is Weathering With You trivializing climate change, or representing its true horror?
