We return to the gorgeous filmmaking of Hayao Miyazaki with PONYO 2008's which is our next Rialto Recommends. A five-year-old boy develops a relationship with Ponyo, a young goldfish princess who longs to become a human after falling in love with him. PONYO is a visually stunning fairy tale that's a sweetly poetic treat for children of all ages. The Los Angeles Times said "Five minutes into this magical film you'll be making lists of the individuals of every age you can expose to the very special mixture of fantasy and folklore, adventure and affection, that make up the enchanted vision of Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki." While Roger Ebert raved in his four star review "This poetic, visually breathtaking work by the greatest of all animators has such deep charm that adults and children will both be touched. It's wonderful and never even seems to try: It unfolds fantastically." PONYO is streaming on HBOMax or available for purchase as a digital download from Apple, Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube and others.
