Simple, pure, and hypnotizing, you’ll fall in love with this visually stunning animated saga of man versus nature. It’s a captivating ultra-sensory experience when you see it on the big screen in all its glory. Shipwrecked on a deserted island, a nameless man attempts to construct an escape raft, only to find his every effort thwarted by a sea turtle, who dramatically alters the course of the story. Working with award-winning Dutch animator Michael Dudok de Wit, “The Red Turtle” is Japanese powerhouse Studio Ghibli’s first-ever international collaboration, and we hope they will do it again. Rapturously rendered in charcoal and muted colors, this Oscar-nominated, dialogue-free tale delivers a universal story about love and companionship for all ages. Some peril, animal death, natural disaster, implied nudity. No spoken language.
