It just really captures the feel for what's great about that game; Gets all the details right. Loved the 60’s setting and the characters development was great with the longer run time.
Adults are just big kids. We all have that 5th grader inside our minds and memories. Now that I have kids of my own I think about others adults and their actions in a lenses that they are just big kids... or versions of their parents.... this movie captures this idea so well. Loved the farm visuals and the magical realism sprinkled in. The end credits section was beautiful. It took its time and some points in the film lagged but the payoff at the end made it all work for me. Getting to the point where my Ghibli ranking is becoming very difficult.
