In Hayao Miyazaki's magical Kiki's Delivery Service, a 13-year-old girl meets the world head on as she spends her first year soloing as an apprentice witch. Kiki (Kirsten Dunst) is still a little green and plenty headstrong, but also resourceful, imaginative, and determined. With her trusty wisp of a cat Jiji (a gently subdued Phil Hartman) by her side she's ready to take on the world, or at least the quaintly European seaside village she's chosen as her new home. Miyazaki's gentle rhythm and meandering narrative capture the easy pulse of real life (even if his subject is a girl flying high upon a broomstick) and charts the everyday struggles and growing pains of his plucky heroine with sensitivity and understanding. Beautifully detailed animation and the rich designs of the picture-postcard seaside town of red-tiled roofs and cobblestone streets only add to the sense of wonder. This charming animated fantasy is a wholesome, life-affirming picture that doesn't speak down to kids or up to adults. --Sean Axmaker

The story is about Kiki who is becoming a real witch. She has to basically locate in a new place to use her skills there. She has a really hard time even figuring out what she is skilled in doing. This movie shows her hardships in the new location and the friends she makes along the journey. It is sweet. My sons liked it too (they are 10 and 8).
For those of you unfamiliar with the plot of Kiki's Delivery Service, it is a delightful tale of a young witch's first year living away from her Mother. In the story this year separation is a mandatory part of every young witch's apprenticeship. Kiki and her cat/familiar Jiji travel to a big city where she establishes herself a delivery service in order to earn her keep. She meets a young boy who is crazy about flight and flying machines, and the first embers of a romance begins to develop. Kiki has to overcome a crisis of confidence that robs her of her witch's powers, in time to perform a daring rescue. The story is told with the lush animation, quality storytelling, and a beautiful soundtrack that are all the earmarks of a Studio Ghibli production. Usually if I have any complaints about a Studio Ghibli production, it has to do with the voice actors brought in to dub the film into english. In this case however Disney did a fine job of finding appropriate voices to match the characters.
All in all this is a good family movie that is enjoyable by kids and adults alike. I highly recommend this film for any family's movie library.
