Directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi (Japan, 2018, 102 min.). Digital.
From Academy Award-nominated Hiromasa Yonebayashi—animator on Studio Ghibli masterpieces Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, and Ponyo—comes a dazzling new adventure about a young girl named Mary who discovers a flower that grants her magical powers, but only for one night.
Mary is an ordinary girl stuck in the country with her great-aunt Charlotte and longing for an adventure. She follows a mysterious cat into the nearby forest, where she discovers an old broomstick and the strange Fly-by-Night flower, a rare plant that blossoms only once every seven years and only in that forest. Together, the flower and the broomstick whisk Mary above the clouds to Endor College, a school of magic run by headmistress Madam Mumblechook and the brilliant Doctor Dee. But there are terrible things happening at the school, and when Mary tells a lie, she must risk her life to try to set things right.
Based on Mary Stewart’s 1971 classic children’s book The Little Broomstick, Mary and The Witch’s Flower is an action-packed film full of jaw-dropping imaginative worlds, ingenious characters, and the simple, heartfelt story of a young girl trying to find a place in the world. Featuring the voices of Ruby Barnhill and Academy Award-winners Kate Winslet and Jim Broadbent.
Co-presented with Anime Boston.
