Hayao Miyazaki’s “Castle in the Sky” chronicles the story of a young boy, Pazu (James Van Der Beek) and young girl Sheeta (Anna Paquin) who hold a mysterious crystal that could unlock the secrets of a deserted floating city.
Standing in their way are pirates and some ruthless foreign secret agents.
In the vein of the Academy Award winning “Spirited Away”, “Castle in the Sky” perfectly blends the power of human emotion with that of an engrossing fantasy filled world.
Miyazaki miraculously brings so many aspects into his films. From the music to the breathtaking landscapes there is so much to herald in this film.
This is a film for all families or just for the kid in all of us. It is a jewel to be cherished.
