From Up on Poppy Hill

Legendary Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki brings another stirring, emotionally rewarding tale to life with the vocal talents of Gillian Anderson, Christina Hendricks, Ron Howard, Chris Noth, Aubrey Plaza, Beau Bridges, Jamie Lee Curtis, Bruce Dern and more in this tale set in Yokohama in 1963. As Japan is picking itself up from the devastation of World War II, a friendship begins to blossom between high school students Umi (Sarah Bolger) and Shun (Anton Yelchin), but a buried secret from their past casts a shadow on the future and threatens to pull them apart. Contains three hours of bonus materials including a speech by Miyazaki days after the Fukushima earthquake; a cast recording featurette with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews; a 20-page booklet containing the original project proposal; original Japanese language and English language versions with subtitles and dubtitles and more.
