From the legendary Academy Award-winning animation house Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Arrietty, The Tale of The Princess Kaguya), comes the haunting and touching tale When Marnie Was There. A beautiful story about ever-lasting friendship based on the beloved young adult novel of the same name by Joan G Robinson. When Marnie Was There is another superb addition to Ghibli’s well-loved catalogue, receiving an Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Feature this year.
When Marnie Was There is the story of an emotionally distant adolescent girl, who upon being sent to live with relatives in the countryside becomes obsessed with an abandoned mansion, and infatuated with a girl who lives there; a girl who may or may not be real. When Marnie Was There is released on June 10th playing in original Japanese with English subtitles, as well as an English-language dubbed version.
Studio Ghibli Forever is a celebration of the many wonderful films – for children and adults alike – from one of the most acclaimed animation studios in the world. The films of directors such as Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata have long been celebrated as beautifully hand-drawn works of art that transport audiences of all ages to fantastical worlds filled with unforgettable characters.
The season runs at cinemas across the country including 20 Picturehouse cinemas until 28 July. Each cinema will show the same film in the same week, although exact show times will vary by site. For more information visit facebook.com/studioghibliuk
