This movie is just about perfect. I especially love how the young girl has a job, takes are of herself, and behaves responsibly - more parents should trust their children this way! Friendships in this movie transcend age groups: a teenage girl befriends preteen Kiki, and adults treat Kiki with true respect as a capable human being. Kiki's family, employer, and friends all have faith in her, which helps give her confidence to grow and make the most of her unique talents. The perilous finale is exciting, not scary, as it's clear the whole time that Kiki will save the day. Finally, for pagan families this movie is a great way to begin conversations about the ethical use of magic, as well as stereotypes about witches vs real witches. An all around feel good movie for school age kids that will cheer even cynical teens and adults. I have shared this movie with friends of all ages and everyone loves it.
