Featuring the voices of Gillian Anderson and Sarah Bolger the film is recommended for ages 9 and up. Directed by Goro Miyazaki; written by Hayao Miyazaki; "From Up on Poppy Hill" is rated PG.
Set in Yokohama in 1963, this lovingly hand-drawn film centers on Umi and Shun and the budding romance that develops as they join forces to save their high school's ramshackle clubhouse from demolition.
The L.A. Times said, "'From Up on Poppy Hill' is frankly stunning, as beautiful a hand-drawn animated feature as you are likely to see. It's a time-machine dream of a not-so-distant past, a sweet and honestly sentimental story that also represents a collaboration between the greatest of Japanese animators and his up-and-coming son."
