This wonderfully animated children's tale is from the legendary Studio Ghibli, and is directed by Hayao Miyazaki, one of Japan's most beloved animators. The story follows Satsuke and Mei, two young girls who find that their new country home is in a mystical forest inhabited by a menagerie of mystical creatures called Totoros. They befriend O Totoro, the biggest and eldest Totoro, who is also the king of the forest. As their girls' mother lies sick in the hospital, O Totoro brings the sisters on a magical adventure but also helps them to understand the realities of life. Like most films released by Miyazaki's Studio Ghibli, this family-oriented feature has a powerful ecological theme.
From the director of Dumb and Dumber, Green Book is a feel-good film about racism. A working-class Italian-American bouncer becomes the driver, protector, and teacher, of an African-American classical pianist on a tour of venues through the American South in the 1960s.
"Well, it's a handsomely made and watchable picture and there is a real warmth in Ali and Mortensen's performances."

"As simply as we can put it, My Neighbor Totoro is a masterpiece of children's animation. There's no one we wouldn't recommend it to."
