An inspired coming of age story from Studio Ghibli
Set in Yokohama in 1963, this lovingly hand-drawn film centres on Umi (Sarah Bolger) and Shun (Anton Yelchin) and the budding romance that develops as they join forces to save their high school's ramshackle clubhouse from demolition.
The top-grossing Japanese film of 2011 and winner of the Japan Academy Prize for Animation, From up on Poppy Hill captures the innocence of new love as well as the beauty of Yokohama's harbour and lush surroundings.
With its rich colour palette, stunning exteriors, sun-drenched gardens, bustling cityscapes and painterly detail, From up on Poppy Hill provides a pure, sincere and nuanced evocation of the past and marks yet another creative triumph for Studio Ghibli.
