The Tale of the Princess Kaguya movie rating: green light

Tale of the Princess Kaguya green light

With gorgeously expressive animation reminiscent of Japanese scrolls and an irrepressible heroine who is full of life and joy and humor, this is an ancient folktale fresh with immediacy and relevance.
I’m “biast” (pro): generally love Studio Ghibli’s films

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I viewed the subtitled Japanese-language version of ‘The Tale of the Princess Kaguya.’ The voice cast of the English-language-dubbed version includes Chloë Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, and Lucy Liu.
