Kari-gurashi no Arietti
Studio Ghibli’s charming and beautiful take on The Borrowers is fun for all the family.
Dir Hiromasa Yonebayashi
English subtitles (with reading of subtitles for younger children)
Young Arrietty and her parents are tiny people who live beneath the floorboards of a house where a boy named Sho is staying for the summer. Their accidental meeting brings about a series of events that threatens Arrietty’s whole world, and the situation is made worse when a meddling maid decides to hunt the family down using a pest control expert. Mary Norton’s The Borrowers is given an enjoyable Studio Ghibli twist.
