    Mary and the Witch's Flower
    A young girl (voice of Ruby Barnhil) plucks a rare flower in the woods near her great aunt's house. She gains special powers and is transported to a school for witches and wizards, but soon learns that the institution is harboring a dark secret. Hiromasa Yonebayashi directed this animated fantasy, which is adapted from the novel The Little Broomstick by Mary Stewart. Kate Winslet, Jim Broadbent, Ewen Bremner, and Louis Ashbourne Serkis also lend their voices. ~ Ben Schultz, Rovi

      Ghibli style, but not quite Ghibli Storytelling

      We picked up this film because it is one of those styled after the works of Ghibli animation. It has gorgeous artwork both in the animation itself and in the backgrounds. People familiar with Ghibli will find a lot of similarities here. However, story-wise, it just doesn't quite reach the heights of Ghibli films. The story is good, but it has a tendency to meander a bit. It just doesn't feel as focused or concise a story as one might hope for. However, it is still a really nice tale with gorgeous animation. Give it a shot if you are a fan of Ghibli films.

      Mary and the Witch's Flower is a fun and creative film that also sends a nice message about friendship! The animation is gorgeous, colors pop and lines look crisp, character designs are appealing, and lsndscapes look both vibrant and lush. Blu-ray looks great and I would rate thd DVD as better than average. I can't comment on the English voice actors, but the Japanese cast did a wonderful job and voices seemed to match their looks, age, etc. Has a very Miyazaki feel to it, both dark and surprisingly cute at the same time. Highly recommended!

      I don't like to dissect movies, I think it ruins them. But...you can look at this as a legacy movie. This movie, and Ponoc are about Ghibli 2.0. That's my opinion anyway. I liked this movie. But as an artist I see a studio that's off to a great start. I promise Ponoc is going to kick butt in the future.

      My family and I enjoy Anime movies from Japan and this movie is now one of our favorites. It is a movie that the entire family can enjoy! On a Blu-ray disc the audio and video are excellent. The picture quality was particularly outstanding.

      Anyone who loves Studio Ghibli movies should give this movie a watch. This is Studio Ponac's first film. It a beautiful graphics with a good fantasy story about a girl who gains the power to do spells from a flower.

      Enjoy a fun humanity restoring story. Characters feel real and you come back with a renewed outlook. A few surprises remain throughout the movie. Of course there are good guys and corrupted bad guys. Guess who triumphs...

      I'm not a big fan of anime. I like most of what Studio Ghibli has done but I was skeptical about picking up this movie. Glad I took the chance. The movie is great and I've watched it three times within a week of owning it.

      If you like an anime like Ponyo you will like this film. It does start a little slow but when the fantasy starts it's very imaginative. It is also a very beautiful, and colorful movie.
