Miyazaki Does It Again!

From Up On Poppy Hill!

This is a Miyazaki film (Spirited Away, Ponyo, Howl's Moving Castle) so we know it will be beautiful! It actually released in Japan in 2011 but the U.S. will finally get a chance to view it on the big screen this March!


Set in Japan of the 1960s, the film tells the story of Umi Matsuzaki, a high school girl living in a boarding house. When Umi meets Shun Kazama, a member of the school's newspaper club, they decide to clean up the school's clubhouse.

However, Tokumaru, the chairman of the local high school and a businessman, intends to demolish the building for redevelopment and Umi and Shun, along with ShirĊ Mizunuma, must persuade him to reconsider.

It is the story of young love and there is an interesting mystery about the high school couple's birth. Catch it March 15th 2013 in select theaters!


  1. Two words when this arrives in theaters: I'm IN!
