directed by Hayao Miyazaki
Hayao Miyazaki’s cult animation Spirited Away was released 15 years ago, yet the story of imagination and wonder remains as delightful and visually breathtaking today. Young Chihiro becomes trapped in a strange new spirit world. When her parents undergo a mysterious transformation, she must call upon her hitherto unknown courage to free herself and return her family to the outside world. This is one of the finest animated films, founded in traditional animation: frame-by-frame drawing.
