From Up On Poppy Hill
"Frankly stunning, as beautiful a hand-drawn animated feature as you are likely to see" – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
From the legendary Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away) comes another animated triumph, directed by Goro Miyazaki and based on a screenplay by Academy Award®-winner* Hayao Miyazaki.
Yokohama, 1963. Japan is picking itself up from the devastation of World War II and preparing to host the Olympics. Against this backdrop of hope and change, a friendship begins to blossom between high school students Umi and Shun – but a buried secret from their past emerges to cast a shadow on the future and pull them apart.
Featuring the voices of Gillian Anderson, Sarah Bolger, Beau Bridges, Jamie Lee Curtis, Bruce Dern, Isabelle Fuhrman, Christina Hendricks, Ron Howard, Chris Noth, Emily Osment, Aubrey Plaza, Charlie Saxton, Alex Wolff, and Anton Yelchin.
