Howl's Moving Castle (ハウルの動く城 Hauru no Ugoku Shiro?) is a 2004 Japanese animated fantasy film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki of Studio Ghibli and loosely based on Diana Wynne Jones' novel of the same name. (Source - Wiki)
Plot Summary: A plain young hatter named Sophie has her life changed when an evil witch transforms her into an old woman. Unable to face her family in such a condition, Sophie runs away in search of a way to become young again. Along the way, Sophie helps a turnip headed scarecrow, who repays her by leading her to the moving castle owned by the dreaded wizard Howl. There she befriends Howl's apprentice Markl, Howl's fire demon Calcifer, and eventually, Howl himself. Sophie then becomes the castle's cleaning lady in an effort to not only find the solution to her problem but to save Howl from his own terrible secrets as well.
Alright, it's a Miyazaki so you know it's good. But after rigorously (am I using that right?) searching show times, i discovered that it's playing absolutely NOWHERE in my town. The closest is Chicago! Jees...I doubt my parent's will drive me all the way out there...
*cries* someone hug me!!

How fortuitous. I DLed it a few days ago but haven't had the time ti watch it. I will probably watch it tomorrow. I saw an ad for it on a website, of all things to lure me to DL a movie. It looks pretty good though, and the director or whatever received acclaim for his Spirited Away movie.
