Continuing our Studio Ghibli season, Spirited Away is the story of a 10-year-old girl wandering into a world ruled by gods, witches, and spirits.
Magical is a word used casually about films like this, films about fantasy and childhood. Yet this one really does deserve it: an enchanted and enchanting feature from the Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki which left me feeling lighter than air. 5/5 The Guardian.com
