Spirited Away

I was really glad to see it take the Oscar. For those who didn’t get to see it the first time around. It has been re-released in 800 theatres in the US.

I really loved this movie. I didn’t get as much out of Princess Mononoke. (I just don’t think Eastern archetypes are as meaningful to me.) Spirited Away was definitely something I connected to though. I think the posts above hit the nail on the head. It’s a story of a little kid learning to be brave using only her little kid stuff.
