Ponyo

"Miyazaki works marvels. Sit back and behold." – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

The sweetly poetic fairy tale Ponyo, Hayao Miyazaki’s ninth animated feature film, is a delightful spin on Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid. Perfect for audiences of all ages, it centers on the friendship between five-year-old Sosuke and a magical goldfish named Ponyo, the young daughter of a sorcerer father and a sea-goddess mother. After a chance encounter, Ponyo yearns to become a human so she can be with Sosuke. As to be expected with Miyazaki, the film is awash in pure unbridled imagination and visual wonder — but it is the tender love, humor, and devotion exhibited by Ponyo and Sosuke that form the emotional heart of the film. This film is suitable for ages 5+
