This week in cinemas: ‘When Marnie Was There’ (Japan)

When Marnie Was ThereAs presaged in our review the other day, this Thursday 14 May sees the release in Australian cinemas of When Marnie Was There, the latest feature from legendary Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli.

It’s director Hiromasa Yonebayashi’s second film (after Arrietty), and it follows the adventures of Anna, a teenage girl sent to convalesce in a rural seaside town over a summer. While there, she strikes up a friendship with a mysterious flaxen-haired girl named Marnie; read my review for more details.

Distributor Madman are screening the film Australia-wide for two weeks, and audiences have the choice (depending on which cinema you go to) of Japanese audio with English subtitles or an English audio dub. You can find all the screening locations on the official site for the film.

Here’s a trailer:
