"When Marnie Was There," the possibly last film of Ghibli, starts its short run at the Nuarte this Friday.
Check out times.
"Anna is a troubled, lonely 12-year-old orphan who calls her kindly
adoptive mother “aunt.” Sent from her foster home in the city one summer
to a sleepy town by the sea for her health (and, her mother hopes, to
make new friends), Anna is drawn to a magnificent, apparently deserted
mansion in the marshes. There she encounters Marnie, a mysterious but
out-going blonde, and they become friends. “Let’s keep us a secret
forever,” says Marnie, and Anna agrees. Soon Anna is telling Marnie
things she never told anyone, while Marnie introduces her to the
nighttime revels at the villa, presided over by her stylish socialite
mother. Yet Marnie’s frequent unexplained absences make Anna wonder
about her newfound friend. Animated in a beautiful world that seems to
capture both dreams and reality, this Studio Ghibli release is the
second feature by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, director of The Secret World of Arrietty. In English."
