Jada Pinkett Smith leads a backwards village to salvation

From celebrated director Hayao Miyazaki, Princess Mononoke is a Japanese, English-language animated film about saving the forest and its inhabitants from senseless human destruction.

The film teaches that we must live in peace and harmony with nature through personification of the forest and its creatures, for destroying nature will only mean destroying ourselves.

Jada Pinkett Smith plays a heroic villager who must summon all her bravery to rescue her people once their world starts to crumble. The movie is filled with philosophical gems, like the quote, “Life is suffering. It is hard. The world is cursed. But still, you find reasons to keep living.”
