Part of Summer of Ghibli at the Rose: Winner of the Academy Award® for Best Animated Feature, Hayao Miyazaki’s wondrous fantasy adventure is a dazzling masterpiece from one of the most celebrated filmmakers in the history of animation.

Chihiro’s family is moving to a new house, but when they stop on the way to explore an abandoned village, her parents undergo a mysterious transformation, and Chihiro is whisked into a world of fantastic spirits ruled over by the sorceress Yubaba. Put to work in a magical bathhouse for spirits and demons, Chihiro must use all her wits to survive in this strange new place, find a way to free her parents, and return to the normal world. Overflowing with imaginative creatures and thrilling storytelling, SPIRITED AWAY (2001) became a worldwide smash hit, and is one of the most critically-acclaimed films of all time.

PG, 2h 5m.

"In scene after scene, SPIRITED AWAY unleashes so much wonder and visual imagination that you end up watching the movie in a state of rapturous, awestruck bliss." – Miami Herald

"Miyazaki's nonstop images are so stunning, and his imagination so vivid, that the only possible complaint you could have about SPIRITED AWAY is that there is no rest period, no timeout." – Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"SPIRITED AWAY is the great treasure of 21st-century animation, and we may still be saying that when the 21st century ends." – Financial Times

"The magic of this film exists well beyond simple beautiful animated artwork and a moving, well-crafted story; it is how warmly it opens up so many elements of Japanese culture and belief to an international audience." – ABC Radio

"SPIRITED AWAY has the quality of a dream: It takes you places so foreign and fantastic you have no option but to yield completely to it and be spirited along." – Globe and Mail
