In this nearly lost masterpiece from Studio Ghibli, Taeko, a restless young woman, heads for the countryside, a journey that elicits memories of childhood, and worries that she’s lost the spark that made her a happy, even magical girl. Isao Takahata’s film, produced by the great Hayao Miyazaki, features brilliant visuals, as in every Ghibli production, but is a more mature, nostalgic film, a gentle, emotionally nuanced exploration of girls and women that will resonate deeply with many. Daisy Ridley (THE FORCE AWAKENS) provides the voice of Taeko. (Japan, 1991/2016, 118m, digital, GKids)*
