Japan, 2008

Walking the beach of his small fishing village, a young boy, Sōsuke (Frankie Jonas), frees a funny-looking goldfish (Noah Cyrus) he finds trapped in a jar and takes it into his care. But Ponyo, as he calls her, is no ordinary fish. She’s the magical daughter of a sea wizard who longs to be a human girl. Another enduring classic from master animator Hayao Miyazaki, Ponyo blends childhood wonder, high adventure and a compelling appeal for the environment as only he can.

35mm, color, English-language version, 101 min. Director: Hayao Miyazaki. Screenwriter: Hayao Miyazaki, Melissa Mathison (English-language version). With: Noah Cyrus, Frankie Jonas, Matt Damon.
