Story


Sent from her foster home in the city one summer to a sleepy town by the sea in Hokkaido, Anna dreams her days away among the marshes. She believes she's outside the invisible magic circle to which most people belong - and shuts herself off from everyone around her, wearing her "ordinary face". Anna never expected to meet a friend like Marnie, who does not judge Anna for being just what she is. But no sooner has Anna learned the loveliness of friendship than she begins to wonder about her newfound friend...

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Marnie is as gorgeously animated as anything its studio has ever made..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]
“.."Marnie" is a worthy last entry from Ghibli before the studio reportedly goes on hiatus..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
“..will make fans of the Japanese animation studio yearn for when Hayao Miyazaki was there. The now-retired maestro of the form had a sense of poetry and lyricism that's sadly missing here..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
