Kiki's Delivery Service
Kiki's Delivery Service |
One of GhibliÕs most popular films in North America, KikiÕs Delivery Service is a beautiful and timeless story of a girl finding her way in the world.
Kiki, a klutzy 13-year-old witch-in-training, starts her own broom-borne courier business (along with Jiji, her chatty black cat). But she finds that her powers are fading in the face of her insecurity and self-doubt. The gorgeously drawn film is a sweet-natured and inspirational coming-of-age story, forgoing grand adventure for the discoveries and epiphanies of everyday life. (102 mins., 35mm, rated G, English-language version)
Studio Ghibli founder Hayao Miyazaki insisted that this North American retrospective be presented on beautiful 35mm film, so donÕt miss this rare opportunity to immerse yourself in a modern classic on the big screen and on film.
So that it can be easily enjoyed by younger viewers, this Studio Ghibli feature is presented in a skillfully produced English-language version. (Film fans take note: many of the Studio Ghibli dubbed versions were overseen by PixarÕs John Lasseter.)
