The Cat Returns
Castles in the Sky: Miyazaki, Takahata, and the masters of Studio Ghibli
After high school student Haru rescues an elegant black cat from being hit by a speeding delivery truck, the awkward teenager finds her locker inundated with gift-wrapped mice and her desk inscribed with crayoned cat-hieroglyphs.
As it turns out, the feline in question is Lune, Prince of the Cat Kingdom. Following a visit from the ultimate aristocat-the Cat King himself!-Haru is plunged into the cat's underground realm, where she finds that the hardest part of growing up is staying yourself-quite literally, when her body starts to take on an unmistakably feline form. The film carries over the popular character the Baron (a debonair, top-hat-wearing cat figurine come to life) from Studio Ghibli's 1995 film Whisper of the Heart. (75 mins., 35mm, rated G, English-dubbed version)
Studio Ghibli founder Hayao Miyazaki insisted that this North American retrospective be presented on beautiful 35mm film, so don't 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 Pixar's John Lasseter.)...more
