One of the rare films that has grown in my estimation on every viewing, Spirited Away is Hayao Miyazaki’s masterpiece (among masterpieces). The story of a young girl who is set adrift, cruelly abandoned by her parents who indulge in their desires, alone in a strange spirit world, Spirited Away portrays coming of age and waking up to what lies behind and below the material world. Imagination and pathos, hope and struggle, faded dreams and day-to-day existence have rarely been portrayed so poignantly on film, or indeed any other storytelling medium. For those who have ears to hear and eyes to see, Spirited Away offers a new awakening any time we care to visit, reminding us of our ability to choose a better way to live even in our disappointment in others.
