Spirited Away

It takes an Oscar on top of pretty much unananimous critical praise (98% Fresh on the Tomatometer) to convince Disney that anime great Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away should get a wider release. Run, don't walk, to see it. Forgive the cliches, but it is truly dazzlingly beautiful, incredible funny, eye-opening, and a warmly told story.

The Daily News' Jack Matthews is thrilled, as it was his favorite film of 2002.

The official site from Disney can give you movie times, but this Spirited Away site from Australia is better overall. Watch the trailer
