The Tale of the Princess Kaguya ★★★★½

While its bloated running time and steady pace might test some viewers’ patience, Studio Ghibli’s latest masterpiece is a moving work of timeless, otherworldly beauty. Its minimalist storytelling and breathtaking hand-drawn animation seamlessly capture the magic and mysticism of Japanese folklore, making this universal tale of love and identity the most inspiring and original animated feature of 2014.
