ARRIETTY is the latest masterwork from the Academy Award®-winning Studio Ghibli.
Based on Mary Norton’s much-loved children’s fantasy novel series THE BORROWERS, the story of ARRIETTY revolves around 14-year-old Arrietty and the rest of her family – a race of “tiny people” who live in peaceful anonymity under the floorboards as they make their own home from items ‘borrowed’ from the house’s human inhabitants. However, life changes for Arrietty and her parents when a human boy named Sho stumbles upon Arrietty. As the relationship between the two develops, the inevitable risk of human interference begins to endanger the lives of Arrietty and her family. Now, Arrietty and Sho must work together to try and protect their way of life.
