Ghibli Retrospective:  The Kids Talk SPIRITED AWAY
ScreenAnarchy is certainly not the youngest of movie websites, and a number of the writing staff have children that are old enough to understand and consume media in a way that is both raw and fresh, but also with the inklings of consideration.  In short, this is the age where many of us fall in love with the movies.  Thus, we are offering you the perspective of smaller children as they react to seeing classic animation on the big screen.  And what better way to kick things off with the works of Hayao Miyazaki, Isao Takahata and the folks at Studio Ghibli.  

With the 15 film Ghibli retrospective in full swing at TIFF Lightbox, Willem (age 9) and Miranda (age 7) watched 10 year old Chihiro explore the spiritual bath-house from top to bottom in an effort to rescue her imprisoned parents in Hayao Miyazaki's Oscar winning Spirited Away. Environmentalism, empathy and oversized offspring are all ripe for discussion in the video below.
