Spirited Away

Event for Teens!

The Grandview Branch Library will be showing the movie ‘Spirited Away’ on Wednesday, July 18th, 3:00-5:00pm. Come and enjoy the movie on our shaded, open air patio! Free popcorn and beverages will be provided.

In this Japanese anime adventure, 10 year old Chihiro and her parents wander into a town filled with gods, monsters and witches. When Chihrio’s parents are changed into animals she must fend for herself. This requires finding a job to make her way in this strange world until she can find her way back home.

Featuring the voices of Daveigh Chase, Michael Chiklis, Susan Egan, Lauren Holly, Jason Marsden, Suzanne Pleshette, and David Ogden Stiers. Walt Disney Pictures; Directed by Hayao Miyazaki. Rated PG; 124 Minutes; 2002

If you are interested in Japanese animated films, known as anime, I recommend books on the subject such as The Anime Encyclopedia, by Jonathan Clements, or Anime Explosion! by Patrick Drazen.
