FF+ The Holdovers/The Boy and the Heron (TIFF Reviews)

Familiar stories can still be emotionally effective and entertaining, as we see in new work from both Alexander Payne and Hayao Miyazaki. THE HOLDOVERS feels like a simple dramedy that we don’t often see, but is charming and touching in equal measure. In Miyazaki’s latest fantastical adventure, a boy travels to a magical world and copes with the loss of his mother, and the director infuses the work with themes of legacy and memory that feel extremely personal.
