Spirited Away

Genre: Animation, Foreign Language; Starring: Daveigh Chase, Miyu Irino, Takashi Naito, Mari Natsuki; Director: Hayao Miyazaki; Author: Hayao Miyazaki; Runtime (in minutes): 130; MPAA Rating: PG; Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures

Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki’s sublime, fluid masterpiece about a 10-year-old girl lost in a shadowy amusement park for the spirits is a triumph of psychological depth and artistic brilliance offered as the magical adventures of one skinny girl. If the words ”Walt Disney Studios Presents” (and warm-pitched, English-language dubbing by American actors including Suzanne Pleshette and David Ogden Stiers) bring more viewers to this marvel – as resplendent as any in the great Disney repertory – the gods and spirits of animated cinema will smile.
