A character sketch from one of my favorite Ghibli films.

The Tale of Princess Kaguya is a beautiful story of a girl of mysterious origins raised by a family of bamboo-cutters. One of the best depictions of female social problems that I’ve seen in cinema, while simultaneously touching on fundamental questions of happiness, sorrow, and what it means to be truly alive.
