In this adaptation of Haruki Murakami's novel, a teenage boy named Kafka runs away from home to search for his biological mother and sister, eventually taking shelter in a small library run by a transgendered woman. At the same time, Nakata—a kind, mentally impaired older guy who as a child had some kind of paranormal accident that damaged his brain but gave him the power to communicate with cats sort of—faces off against a guy named Johnny Walker who… kills cats. And then harvests their souls. The appealing cast compensates for the confusing, dream-like plot that unfolds. (CK)
