Synopsis

Legendary Studio Ghibli cofounder Isao Takahata (GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES, POM POKO) revisits Japan's most famous folktale in this gorgeous, hand-drawn masterwork, decades in the making. Found inside a shining stalk of bamboo by an old bamboo cutter (James Caan) and his wife (Mary Steenburgen), a tiny girl grows rapidly into an exquisite young lady (Chloë Grace Moretz). The mysterious young princess enthralls all who encounter her – but ultimately she must confront her fate, the punishment for her crime.From the studio that brought you SPIRITED AWAY, MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO, and THE WIND RISES comes a powerful and sweeping epic that redefines the limits of animated storytelling and marks a triumphant highpoint within an extraordinary career in filmmaking for director Isao Takahata.
