France, Belgium, Japan 2015 80 mins.

Winner of Special Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and an Oscar nominee, Dutch animator Michael Dudok de Wit’s film was produced by the Japanese Studio Ghibli, another in a long line of masterpieces. Told with wordless elegance is a fable about a man washed ashore on an island and learning to live with nature—a universal story about love and companionship for all ages. “So simple, so pure, it feels as if it has existed for hundreds of years.” —Variety.
