2017 OSCAR NOMINEE: BEST ANIMATED FEATURE

"Gorgeously rendered, this magical animation begins as a story of desert-island survival and evolves into something deeper. Co-produced by Studio Ghibli, the film bears the company’s holistic belief in a wider natural world with powers of its own"
★★★★
- Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out

"Studio Ghibli makes a stylish return with this splendidly singular adventure, which has been almost a decade in the making. Unlikely as it sounds, The Red Turtle is a strangely compelling allegory punctuated by nerve-wrecking action scenes, as the survivors battle against elements and circumstance"
★★★★
- Tara Brady, The Times

Studio Ghibli’s first co-production, The Red Turtle is a mature, dialogue free-piece about a man getting to grips with life on a desert island.

A man is shipwrecked on a beautiful island devoid of humans and must make the most of what he has to survive. Watched on by a group of sand crabs, he attempts to escape but is thwarted by the weather and a red turtle with a vendetta. Then an unexpected visitor arrives who will alter the man’s fate for all time...

The debut feature of a true auteur, The Red Turtle is a brilliant twist on a familiar premise that packs a hefty emotional punch.
