A joyful animated feature, Kiki’s Delivery Service is about a teenage girl who leaves home to begin her training as a witch. Relocating in a town where she makes friends with a baker and his wife, Kiki uses her ability to fly to start a delivery service. A simple coming of age story, Kiki and her talking cat are a delightful duo who find their independence, but not before learning valuable life lessons that threaten their special abilities (Klaus Ming February 2015).
