The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is a brilliant, yet ultimately heartbreaking, Japanese animated film from the novel by Yasutaka Tsutsui. The story of a girl who can control time helps the audience to understand that every action has an equal and opposite reaction and that the actions we take can drastically alter the things and people around us.
Among the takeaways from this movie are:
- We are part of a larger landscape and are responsible for our impact on others
- Before taking action always consider the consequences
- It is actually a blessing to not know our futures . . . learn from the past, prepare for the future but live in the moment.
