Taku and his best friend Yutaka are head ed back to school for what looks like another uneventful year. But they so on find their friendship tested by the arrival of Rikako\, a beautiful new transfer student from Tokyo whose attitude vacillates wildly from flirty and flippant to melancholic. When Taku joins Rikako on a trip to Tokyo\, t he school erupts with rumors\, and the three friends are forced to come to terms with their changing relationships. Ocean Waves was the first Studio Ghibli film directed by someone other than studio founders Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata\, as director Tomomi Mochizuki led a talented staff of younger employees in an adaptation of Saeko Himuro&rsquo\;s best-selling n ovel. Full of shots bathed in a palette of pleasingly soft pastel colors a nd rich in the unexpected visual details typical of Studio Ghibli&rsquo\;s most revered works\, Ocean Waves is an accomplished teenage drama and a t rue discovery.\nAdmission:Tickets ranging from $10-$15&nbsp\;\nTicket Avai lable at:online and in-person at the theater\nWEB:<a href="http://www.ifcc enter.com/films/ocean-waves-2/" target="_blank">www.ifccenter.com/</a> SUMMARY:Studio Ghibli's OCEAN WAVES film release URL:/en/events/2016/12/28/studio-ghiblis-ocean-waves-film-release/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
