Hayao Miyazaki tackles the delicate topics of growing up and being vulnerable in KIKI’S DELIVERY SERVICE, taking on the subject matter in a manner that is both serious and whimsical (the very hallmarks of a Studio Ghibli film).
Join Kiki as she begins to understand her powers and purpose as a young witch out on her own. In Miyazaki’s world, witches are far from bad, but they do own black cats and fly on broomsticks. They also deliver baked goods, find romance, rescue their pets from trouble and, on occasion, have their perseverance tested.
KIKI’S DELIVERY SERVICE reminds the us that, whether you’re a witch or an ordinary person, growing up is tough and scary — but also thrilling and fun, too.
