There's a reason we named our Studio Ghibli series after this film: it's one of the most wonderfully composed animated film, and won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Chihiro’s family is moving to a new house, but when they stop on the way to explore an abandoned village, her parents undergo a mysterious transformation and Chihiro is whisked into a world of fantastic spirits ruled over by the sorceress Yubaba. Put to work in a magical bathhouse for spirits and demons, Chihiro must use all her wits to survive in this strange new place, find a way to free her parents and return to the normal world. Overflowing with imaginative creatures and thrilling storytelling, Spirited Away became a worldwide smash hit, and is one of the most critically-acclaimed films of all time. "Spirited Away is fast and funny; it's weird and wonderful. Mostly wonderful" –The Guardian.
