A young girl and her mother transplant to a bucolic island town following her father’s death. There, she is visited by a comic trio of impish and kleptomaniac spirit guardians. Gentle, funny, and benefiting from a delicate understanding of grief, this animated film from Japan is a soft-spoken coming-of-age tale in the mold of Studio Ghibli’s Whisper of the Heart. Thankfully, the supernatural elements never overshadow the human story occurring in the foreground. B+
