The Red Turtle

The Red Turtle Release Date: January 20, 2017

Marking the much-anticipated return of Studio Ghibli, the masterfully animated fantasy film The Red Turtle (nominated for a 2017 Best Animated Feature Oscar) tells the story of a man shipwrecked at sea who becomes stranded on a beautiful but desolate island.

He learns to live in isolation, seemingly tormented in his efforts to escape the island by a giant red turtle. Miraculously, soon he comes upon a young woman, also lost at sea, and they create a family together.

Through the story of a man shipwrecked on a tropical island inhabited by turtles, crabs and birds, The Red Turtle recounts the milestones in the life of a human being.
