The Boy and the Heron (12A) screenings

3 February @ 2:30 pm - 10 February @ 11:00 am

£6.00 – £11.00

Directed by: Hayao Miyazaki | Japan | 2023 | 124 mins | Subtitled / Dubbed

Voice cast | Soma Santoki, Masaki Suda, Aimyon / Robert Pattinson, Christian Bale, Willem Dafoe, Florence Pugh, Mark Hamill

Studio Ghibli master Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away, My Neighbour Totoro, Princess Mononoke) returns with this exquisite animated fantasy. A highly personal story, The Boy and the Heron is themed around coming-of-age and how to cope in a world marked by conflict and loss.

12-year-old Mahito struggles to settle in a new town after his mother’s death during the Pacific War. When a talking grey heron informs him that she is still alive, he enters an abandoned tower in search of her and finds himself in another world.

A mature and complex masterpiece, The Boy and the Heron weaves together Miyazaki’s past, present and future. It’s a beautiful, enigmatic film and a fitting (potential) swansong.
