Synopsis

Strange sounds in the darkness... Unearthly music from an old crystal radio... These are all the warning Asuna Watase has before a simple walk to her clubhouse catapults her into a nightmarish adventure that will take her beneath the Earth to a lost land beyond the realm of legend! Attacked by a strange monstrous creature, rescued by a mysterious stranger and pursued by a relentless enemy, Asuna finds herself enmeshed in a centuries old mystery that will bind her to a strange young defender and lead her inevitably, towards a secret that may hold the key to life itself!

Stories about the dead coming back to life are a dime a dozen these days, mainly because of the current fascination with zombies and vampires, but rarely do we see a tale that's more akin to the legends of old, where mighty heroes brave the perils of the underworld to be reunited with their lost love.

Sorry, that should be a 12 year old girl. Let's try this again ...

The story is about Asuna, basically the female lead from every single Ghibli movie ever, a bit of a loner girl who spends her time sitting on rocky outcrops listening to her makeshift crystal radio. One day she is attacked by a monster, who got lost on his way to a Princess Mononoke audition, but is saved by Shun, who is basically the pretty boy male lead from half of every single Ghibli movie ever (don't worry, the other half of the pretty boy male lead is role is taken up by Shun's younger brother). But then Stuff Happens that I don't want to spoil, read more

Recommendations

In both movies the protagonists undertake a journey to a faraway land similar to the underworld, in order to bring back a dead person whom they love very much.

Yes, I'd recommend Chihiro if you enjoyed this.
Both are the "family entertainment" kind of movie. Just like every Ghibli movie the protagonist is a little girl that somehow meets spirits and supernatural beings.
Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo's storyline, compared with other Shinkai works, is way easier to follow.
