Movie Description

From the legendary animators at Studio Ghibli, From Up On Poppy Hill turns away from the fantasy of Ghibli films like Howl's Moving Castle and My Neighbor Totoro and tells a realistic story. Against the backdrop of post-World War II Japan, Poppy Hill's heroes are a couple of schoolmates trying to save a beloved part of their school from being wrecked to prepare for the 1964 Olympics. It's a bittersweet tale of teenagers falling in love during a tumultuous time, escaping from the manacles of history, and facing an unsure future with optimism and grace.
