Beautifully animated Japanese film Arrietty is inspired by the Mary Norton classic children’s novel The Borrowers, with a wonderful Japanese twist by the talented anime powerhouse Studio Ghibli.
Beneath the floorboards of a sprawling mansion set in a magical, overgrown garden in the suburbs of Tokyo, tiny 14-year-old Arrietty lives with her equally tiny parents.
Arrietty and her family live by “borrowing”. Everything they have, they borrow or make from the things they have borrowed. Arrietty’s parents have always warned her: “Never let humans see you.” But the adventurous Arrietty doesn’t listen, and soon she gets discovered by Sho, a 12-year-old human boy who lives in the mansion.
