Kiki’s Delivery Service
This week’s film is a classic from Studio Ghibli.
As part of her training, the young witch Kiki and her talking cat fly off to a new town where she can practice her skills in a new setting. But after finding a beautiful city to settle in, finding a job and a place to live prove more difficult. Fortunately, she soon discovers a great business for herself: making deliveries on her broomstick!
Of course, the job is not without its share of troubles, from pesky birds to losing cargo to getting caught in the rain. Things get even worse when her flying powers begin to vanish.
Kiki’s Delivery Service is a light-hearted episodic fantasy for the whole family. While younger viewers may enjoy the excitement and comedy of Kiki’s various adventures, older viewers may appreciate the story’s themes of overcoming self-doubt, finding purpose, and how maturity changes the way we view the world.
