Legendary filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki’s first big U.S. success tells the story of a resourceful young witch who uses her broom to create a delivery service, only to lose her gift of flight in a moment of self-doubt.
“One of the sweetest, most enticing animated features ever made.” – Film 4
It is tradition for all young witches to leave their families on the night of a full moon and set out into the wide world to learn their craft. When that night comes for Kiki, she embarks on her life journey with her chatty black cat, Jiji, landing the next morning in a sea-side village, where a bakery owner hires her to make deliveries. Rarely has Miyazaki’s art been so brilliantly rendered as in this delightfully imaginative Studio Ghibli film – a beautiful and timeless story of a young girl finding her way in the world. (Dir. by Hayao Miyazaki, 1989, Japan, 102 mins, Rated G)
