Mary And The Witchs Flower (U) 103mins

From Academy Award-nominee Hiromasa Yonebayashi - animator on Studio Ghibli masterpieces Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, and Ponyo and director of When Marnie Was There and The Secret World of Arrietty - comes a dazzling new adventure about a young girl named Mary, who discovers a flower that grants magical powers, but only for one night.

Mary is an ordinary young girl stuck in the country with her Great-Aunt Charlotte and seemingly no adventures or friends in sight. She follows a mysterious cat into the nearby forest, where she discovers an old broomstick and the strange Fly-by-Night flower, a rare plant that blossoms only once every seven years and only in that forest. Together the flower and the broomstick whisk Mary above the clouds, and far away to Endor College - a school of magic run by headmistress Madam Mumblechook and the brilliant Doctor Dee. But there are terrible things happening at the school, and when Mary tells a lie, she must risk her life to try to set things right.

Based on Mary Stewart's 1971 classic children's book The Little Broomstick, Mary and The Witch's Flower is an action-packed film full of jaw-dropping imaginative worlds, ingenious characters, and the stirring, heartfelt story of a young girl trying to find a place in the world.

Featuring the voices of Ruby Barnhill and Academy Award-winners Kate Winslet and Jim Broadbent.

 

'It's a beautiful film, expertly done and, although seemingly derivative of Harry Potter, offers a charming look at a Japanese version of England'  The Sun

'Gorgeously detailed pastel interiors, watercolour landscapes and imaginative grotesquery make for suitably magical spectacle. As transporting as any witch's broomstick'  Irish Times

'this is a must for Ghibli fans'  The Observer

'Harry Potter meets Spirited Away in this richly inventive Japanese animation about an English girl'  The Times

'wildly imaginative and beautifully realised'  Daily Express

'The hand-drawn imagination is truly eye-popping'  Metro

'Yonebayashi pays perfect tribute to Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli with this bewitching and visually dazzling adventure. Studio Ponoc is off to a flying start'  Empire

'This art-form has long been thought to have reached its twilight years, but Yonebayashi's film brims over with the bounce and spark of childhood'  Daily Telegraph
