Sent from her foster home in the city one summer to a sleepy town by the sea in Hokkaido, Anna dreams her days away among the marshes. She believes she's outside the invisible magic circle to which most people belong - and shuts herself off from everyone around her, wearing her "ordinary face". Anna never expected to meet a friend like Marnie, who does not judge Anna for being just what she is. But no sooner has Anna learned the loveliness of friendship than she begins to wonder about her newfound friend. Based on the novel by Joan G. Robinson, WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE is the newest film from Studio Ghibli, and the second feature film by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, the director of THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY.
 
Featuring the vocal talents of Hailee Steinfeld, Kiernan Shipka, Ava Acres, Vanessa L. Williams, Catherine O'Hara, Geena Davis, John C. Reilly, Ellen Burstyn and Kathy Bates.
 
What the critics are saying: 
 
Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes
 
There is a quality of enchantment to When Marnie Was There that can’t be faked, and that the studio behind this animated feature is justifiably famous for.
Washington Post, Michael O'Sullivan
 
"At its most beautiful, Yonebayashi's picture is about the magic of female friendship at its purest."
Village Voice, Sherilyn Connelly
 
"It deals with friendship, loneliness, abandonment and forgiveness, and though its curious narrative arc means you're never sure exactly where it's going, the film works up a considerable emotional charge by the end."
Los Angeles Times, Kenneth Turan
