Spirited Away Next Film in "Lazy Sundays Series"

The Clayton Center and Ava Gardner Museum will screen “Spirited Away” on Sunday, July 11, part of the Capital Bank and Parrish, Pulleyn & Young Wealth Management , Inc. Lazy Sundays Cinema At The Center film series.

From one of the most celebrated filmmakers in the history of animated cinema comes the most acclaimed film of 2002. Hayao Miyazaki's latest triumph, filled with astonishing animation and epic adventure, is a dazzling masterpiece for the ages. “Spirited Away” is a wondrous fantasy about a young girl, Chihiro, trapped in a strange new world of spirits. When her parents undergo a mysterious transformation, she must call upon the courage she never knew she had to free herself and return her family to the outside world. An unforgettable story brimming with creativity, the anime film will take you on a journey beyond your imagination.

"Spirited Away" was the first anime film to win an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. It also is the highest-grossing film in Japanese box-office history

The Lazy Sundays film continues on July 18 with Whale Rider, a contemporary story of love, rejection and triumph as a young Maori girl fights to fulfill a destiny her grandfather refuses to recognize.
