Friday night (9:05 PM) and Sunday afternoon (3:00 PM), we will have two screenings of Howl's Moving Castle, an animated film directed by Hayao Miyazak. (for that, we will pause our sunday Harry Potter series, We will resume it the following Sunday, January 27, with the screening of Harry Potter And the Goblet of Fire.)
Friday it will be shown in Japanese with english subtitles and the Sunday screening will be in english.
When an unconfident young woman is cursed with an old body by a spiteful witch, her only chance of breaking the spell lies with a indulgent yet insecure young wizard. Along for the ride are his companions in his legged, walking castle.
"Admirers of [Hayao Miyazaki's] work, which is wildly imaginative, emotionally intense and surpassingly gentle, will find much to appreciate in this film because it demonstrates, once again, his visual ingenuity and his sensitivity as a storyteller. For newcomers to his world, "Howl's Moving Castle" is a fitting introduction to one of modern cinema's great enchanters." A.O. Scott, The New York Times wrote,
