Luna Palace Cinemas says
Celebrate the return of this Studio Ghibli masterpiece - at Luna Leederville for select screenings, with a new English soundtrack

It’s 1982, and Taeko (Daisy Ridley) 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 (Dev Patel), 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 Studio Ghibli, and Academy Award®-nominated director Isao Takahata (The Tale of The Princess Kaguya) 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. To celebrate the film’s 25th anniversary Studio Ghibli has created a brand new English-language version with the voices of Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel). (English language version)
