Howl's Moving Castle

Sun., Nov. 26, 12:55 p.m., Mon., Nov. 27, 7 p.m. and Wed., Nov. 29, 7 p.m.

Sophie is a young woman who lives in a country at war. Her life becomes stranger when she meets an old witch who changes her into a 90-year-old. Sophie sets out to break the curse, but instead encounters a mobile scarecrow who leads her to a wondrous castle that walks on giant bird-like legs. This is the home of the odd young wizard Howl, who reluctantly takes Sophie in as a cleaning woman. She hopes he can transform her back to her true age, while he only wants to avoid becoming embroiled in the war that threatens to destroy two countries. Hayao Miyazaki's anti-war and anti-ageism film Howl's Moving Castle suffers slightly from a plot that hides more of the story than it reveals, but it's gorgeous to look at and features excellent voice performances from Jean Simmons, Christian Bale, Lauren Bacall and Billy Crystal. Howl's Moving Castle wanders back into theaters for a limited run. It plays at 12:55 p.m. Sunday and 7 p.m. Monday and Wednesday (November 26, 27 and 29) at Marcus Wehrenberg Ronnies 20 (5320 South Lindbergh Boulevard; Tickets are $12.50. $12.50
