Rarely seen outside of Japan, Ocean Waves is a poignant, wonderfully detailed story of adolescence and the onset of adulthood. Taku and his best friend are headed back to school, but find their friendship tested by the arrival of Rikako, a beautiful new transfer student. When Taku joins her on a trip to Tokyo, the school erupts with rumors and the three friends are forced to come to terms with their changing relationships. The only Studio Ghibli feature not to have received American release until now, Ocean Waves is a touching teenage drama and a true discovery. Suggested for audiences 12 and up. Plus: Ghiblies Episode 2 – a rare Ghibli short never before seen in the US! In Japanese with English subtitles. (96 minutes total)
