Academy Award Winner: Best Animated Feature, 2003

"One of the finest of all animated films."- Roger Ebert

"Spirited Away is fast and funny; it's weird and wonderful. Mostly wonderful."- Peter Bradshaw, the Guardian

"Appropriate for ages 9+. A magnificent movie with scary creatures and a stong heroine." - Common Sense Media

10-year-old Chihiro and her parents stumble upon a seemingly abandoned amusement park. After her mother and father are turned into giant pigs, Chihiro meets the mysterious Haku, who explains that the park is a resort for supernatural beings who need a break from their time spent in the earthly realm, and that she must work there to free herself and her parents.
