From Mary Norton’s novel, The Borrowers, adapted by Hayao Miyazaki and Keiko Niwa and directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi

Another piece of stunning hand-drawn animation from the world-famous Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Ponyo). The film transfers The Borrowers to a sprawling old house on the edge of Tokyo, where thumb-sized heroine Arrietty fatally ignores her parents’ warning that they must never risk being seen by humans. On a mission to retrieve a sugar cube (armed only with a pin) her adventuring takes her into the life of 12 year-old invalid Sho. Now their unlikely friendship must save Arrietty’s family from destruction…
