The Boy and the Heron (out Dec 7) is the final film (apparently) of legendary director Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away) and is a hand-drawn animated feature about a 12-year-old whisked into an assortment of alternate words. Enjoyed the animation and music but, aside from the final 20 minutes, the weird mix of storylines don't generate much humour or emotion. Grade: B.
