Mary and the Witch's Flower

maryandthewitches550

Opens a world of visual enchantment where water can dance, brooms and carpets take flight, and woodland critters transform into fantastical beings … its emotional warmth and wondrously inviting hand-drawn imagery carry on Ghibli’s proud tradition … weeps you up and then gently sets you down, back into a world that seems more capable of magic than it did before.” –LA Times

Academy Award®-nominated director and former Studio Ghibli artist Hiromasa Yonebayashi—creator of WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE and THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY, and animator on SPIRITED AWAY, HOWL’S MOVING CASTLE and PONYO—adapts a classic young adult novel to tell the heartfelt story of a young girl seeking her place in the world. When Mary, an ordinary but very lonely girl, discovers an old broomstick, and a magical flower, she has a night of unimaginable adventures, including a school that might remind some of Hogwarts … though it was written long before the Harry Potter series. A glorious, bittersweet fantasy-action tale for the whole family (Japan, 2017, 102m, GKids)
