Spirited Away is Hayao Miyazaki’s opus. The film offers masterful storytelling and brilliant animation. Ten-year-old Chihiro, or “Sen” as she’s known after a witch steals her name, inadvertently finds herself in a secret world at odds with gods and her community as she works to redeem her parents. A must-see, even if you’re not a fan of anime.

From Hong Kong film director Andrew Lau, A Beautiful Life provides a touching perception of non-traditional, romantic relationships. The film’s humorously and tragically flawed characters are beautifully portrayed. You’ll laugh and you’ll definitely cry. A tender, moving film.
