'From Up on Poppy Hill' -- 4 stars

PG; 1:31 running timeLike "Ponyo" and last year's "The Secret World of Arrietty," "From Up on Poppy Hill" has arrived here in a slightly revised English-language edition. The voices are provided by a cast including Gillian Anderson, Aubrey Plaza, Jamie Lee Curtis and, more central to the narrative, Sarah Bolger and Anton Yelchin. Hayao Miyazaki adapted the script from the 1980 manga, or graphic novel. Miyazaki's son, Goro, directed "Poppy Hill," and in the story's realistic setting (Yokohama, 1963) and absence of supernatural elements, it's a marked departure for the studio. And yet the glide and flow of the story feel not quite of this world. -- Michael PhillipsRead the full "From Up on Poppy Hill" movie review
