Only Yesterday

Only Yesterday has been re-released with an English re-dub as part of the Studio Ghibli Forever collection; which looks back at some of the wonderful movies they have delivered over the years.

Only Yesterday is a movie not to miss this weekend and we have a terrific new clip for you to take a look at:

Isao Takahata is in the director's chair for the film and he has brought us films such as Pom Poko and Grave of the Fireflies over the years.

He returned to the director's chair last year with the stunning The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, which was a critical and commercial success.

Daisy Ridley and Dev Patel to voice the central characters of Taeko Okajima and Toshio.

It's 1982, and Taeko (Ridley) is 27 years old, unmarried, and has lived her whole life in Tokyo. She decides to visit her relatives in the countryside, and as the train travels through the night, memories flood back of her younger years: the first immature stirrings of romance, the onset of puberty, and the frustrations of math and boys.

At the station, she is met by young farmer Toshio (Patel), and the encounters with him begin to reconnect her to forgotten longings. In lyrical switches between the present and the past, Taeko contemplates the arc of her life and wonders if she has been true to the dreams of her childhood self.

Only Yesterday is in cinemas now as part of the Studio Ghibli Forever retrospective season, and will be available to own for the first time ever on Blu-Ray from August 15th.
