When Marnie Was There DVD Review


Good Morning Lovelies,

Studio Ghibli has become the go-to film for anime films and rightly so. With beautiful animation and gorgeous stories, the films they make are always powerful and stick with the audience or a long time after viewing. Their latest adventure, When Marnie Was There, is definitely joining their classic films.

With the voices of Kiernan Shipka, Hailee Steinfeld, John C Reilly and Kathy Bates being used in the dubbed version, the smooth telling of the story that shows a friendship between two girls who discover each other after meeting at a mysterious house makes audiences sit up and take notice.

Director Hiromasa Yonebayashi, has made sure to keep the Ghibli theme consistent and makes continuous tributes to past films and characters in this film. It is a story that will make people who are not fans of anime become fans.

It is a beautiful story and captures the heart of the novel, seaside and mystery that Studio Ghibli and the book the film is based on where aiming for.

And there so I am giving it...
