'The Wind Rises': Five things to know about Miyazaki's new movie
Across the Pacific, Hayao Miyazaki has already created a hit and a conversation piece with “The Wind Rises,” his look at the early days of aviation and the fictionalized formative years of Japan's Zero airplane creator Jiro Horikoshi as he becomes a star engineer.
