Only Yesterday Screening
September 24, 2017 @ 4:50 pm - 7:00 pm
As part of Art house Film Day, the Esquire Theatre will be screening the animated feature Only Yesterday.
It’s 1982, and Taeko is 27 years old, unmarried, and has lived her whole life in Tokyo. She decides to visit her relatives in the countryside, and as the train travels through the night, memories flood back of her younger years: the first immature stirrings of romance, the onset of puberty, and the frustrations of math and boys. At the station she is met by young farmer Toshio, and the encounters with him begin to reconnect her to forgotten longings. In lyrical switches between the present and the past, Taeko contemplates the arc of her life, and wonders if she has been true to the dreams of her childhood self.
From Academy Award®-nominated director Isao Takahata (GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES) and general producer Hayao Miyazaki, ONLY YESTERDAY is a masterpiece of time and tone, rich with humour and stirring emotion, and beautifully animated by one of the world’s most revered animation studios.
This critically acclaimed Studio Ghibli favourite will play on just 9/24 as part of our Art House Day line-up with an English-language soundtrack featuring Daisy Ridley (STAR WARS: EPISODE VII – THE FORCE AWAKENS) and Dev Patel (SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE).
PGRated PG for thematic elements, some rude behavior and smoking
