“The Red Turtle is a fable so simple, so pure, it feels as if it has existed for hundreds of years, like a brilliant shard of sea glass rendered smooth and elegant through generations of retelling.” Peter Debruge, Variety.

Japanese animation powerhouse Studio Ghibli explores a new creative direction after the retirement of its founder Hayao Miyazaki with this realistically drawn feature created in partnership with Dutch animator Michaël Dudok de Wit. This tale of a shipwrecked man who establishes a family and a new life on an island inhabited only by majestic animal life is told without words. Nominated for a 2017 Academy Award.
PG; 80 minutes
