Sorry for the late notice! Catch From Up on Poppy Hill, the newest film from Studio Ghibli, tonight at Esquire Theatre (in Denver) and Century Boulder (in Boulder).

From the legendary and highly celebrated Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Ponyo, The Secret World of Arrietty) comes From Up on Poppy Hill, the uniquely inspired and highly anticipated coming-of-age story from director Goro Miyazaki and co-writer Hayao Miyazaki. Set in Yokohama in 1963, this lovingly hand-drawn film centers on Umi (voice of Sarah Bolger) and Shun (Anton Yelchin) and the budding romance that develops as they join forces to save their high school’s ramshackle clubhouse from demolition. The top-grossing Japanese film of 2011 and winner of the Japan Academy Prize for Animation, From Up on Poppy Hill captures the innocence of new love as well as the beauty of Yokohama’s harbor and lush surroundings. With its rich color palette, stunning exteriors, sun-drenched gardens, bustling cityscapes and painterly detail, From Up on Poppy Hill provides a pure, sincere and nuanced evocation of the past. In English.
