Kiki's Delivery Service (1989)
Through delicate pacing it teaches us that each person has a purpose, even if they aren't aware of it or don't consider what they do to be anything special. If you dare to rise to a challenge, do your best for yourself and for others, then the rewards can more than equal the effort put in.
It's not action-packed and doesn't need a dramatic setting to be appreciated (you can watch it on a sunny day), but it's refreshingly sincere, and the attention to detail in the environments is noteworthy, making the houses feel lived-in, which gives them a beauty all of their own.
There's a scene during the credits, so don't turn off too soon.
