images-1

Ok, it is flying pig time. One of Sandy’s favorite films is Hayao Miyazaki’s Porco Rosso. We’ll be at Wednesday’s 7 pm showing at Richmond Towne Square, and probably meeting up for dinner at the food court ahead of time. Fathom events has listings for showing nationwide, perhaps near you. The film is showing as part of their Studio Ghibli film festival on Wednesday night at 7 pm. This is the DUBBED showing. Why should you see it? Action, adventure, romance, air pirates!

They say:

From the legendary Studio Ghibli, creators of Spirited Away, and Academy Award®-winning director Hayao Miyazaki, comes a dazzling aerial adventure set in and above the scenic port towns of the Adriatic Sea.Porco Rosso is a world weary flying ace-turned-bounty-hunter, whose face has been transformed into that of a pig by a mysterious spell. When he infuriates a band of sky pirates with his heroics, the pirates hire Curtis, a hotshot American rival, to get rid of him. But with the help of the teenage girl Fio, an aspiring airplane designer, and sultry lounge singer named Gina, Porco takes to the skies for what may be his final high-flying showdown.
