Mary and the Witch’s Flower, the film adaptation of the beloved novel by Mary Stewart, ‘The Little Broomstick’, is a sublime blend of magic and fantasy that will sweep audiences along with its charming, heartfelt adventure. This film reveals the magical world of a school for witches, combining rollicking adventure with the unique richness, art and animation of Studio Ghibli-style storytelling.  But this strangely sinister school is no Hogwarts, and our heroine is not even a witch!
