From the legendary and highly celebrated Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Ponyo, Arrietty) comes From Up On Poppy Hill, the uniquely inspired and highly anticipated coming-of-age story directed by Goro Miyazaki from the screenplay by Hayao Miyazaki.

Set in Yokohama in 1963, this lovingly hand-drawn film centers on Umi (voiced by Sarah Bolger) and Shun (voiced by Anton Yelchin) and the budding romance that develops as they join forces to save their high school’s ramshackle clubhouse from demolition.

The top-grossing Japanese film of 2011 and winner of the Japan Academy Prize for Animation, From Up On Poppy Hill captures the innocence of new love as well as the beauty of Yokohama’s harbor and lush surroundings.

The English language version also features the voices of Gillian Anderson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Isabelle Fuhrman, Christina Hendricks, Ron Howard, and Chris Noth.

From Up On Poppy HIlls is released on 23rd September.
