Howl’s Moving Castle

Just saw Howl’s Moving Castle with Jasmine. It’s the new Miyazaki film, and is fantastic as usual. The premise is pretty simple, a young girl being transformed into an old woman. She then is taken in by a giant magical moving castle, and goes on a journey of self discovery, companionship, and love. Visually, it’s stunning, with interesting interaction and interplay between the characters, and a goofy, elaborate fantasy setting mixing steam power and powerful magic.

Definitely worth seeing. It is warm and uplifting, without beating you over the head with sap. Check it out while it’s still in theaters.
