The Secret World of Arrietty

Saturday, 5/14 & Sunday, 5/15

"Arrietty is a fresh take on Mary Norton's classic The Borrowers, with animated artwork that will have adults enchanted and children gripped." —Kate Muir, Times (UK)

"The film pulses with feelings for childhood and nature and develops a surprising amount of suspense considering it takes place around a single suburban home." —Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader

The directorial debut of Hiromasa Yonebayashi (When Marnie Was There), The Secret World of Arrietty is a gorgeous adaptation of The Borrowers, one of the most popular children's books of all time. In a secret world hidden beneath the floorboards, little people called Borrowers live out of sight of humans. But when brave and tiny Arrietty is out gathering supplies, she is discovered by Shawn, a human boy, and they begin to form a friendship that blossoms into an extraordinary adventure. This sumptuously animated and heartwarming story features the voices of Bridgit Mendler, David Henrie, Amy Poehler, Will Arnett, Moises Arias and Carol Burnett.

This film is recommended for ages 7+
