Spirited Away is a 2001 anime fantasy film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki and produced by Studio Ghibli.  The film tells the story of Chihiro Ogino, a sullen ten-year-old girl who, while moving to a new neighborhood, enters the spirit world. After her parents are transformed into pigs by the witch Yubaba, Chihiro takes a job working in Yubaba’s bathhouse to find a way to free herself and her parents and return to the human world.

Longtime fans of Miyazaki’s Spirited Away can no doubt exhaustively attest to the movie’s peculiar brilliance, and might just be eager to take a few friends who haven’t seen the film already to a re-release screening to introduce them to the film proper. Miyazkai is arguably among the greatest living animators, and Spirited Away is far and away frequently cited as being one of the greatest animated films of all time.
