Overview

Peter Hewitt (Tom and Huck) directed this $30-million family film, an adaptation of Mary Norton's classic children's novels about a miniature family of wee folk, four inches high, living beneath the floorboards of an English cottage. The Borrowers family, so labeled because they "borrow" from the house's kitchen, consist of Pod Clock (Jim Broadbent), mother Homily (Celia Imre), and children Arrietty (13-year-old Flora Newbigin) and Peagreen (Tom Felton). Their adventure begins when they're almost caught in the kitchen by the Lenders, the tenants of the house, so they run for cover. When lawyer-Realtor Ocious P. Potter (John Goodman) discovers the owner of the house has died, he makes plans to evict the Lenders and demolish the building -- a situation where one would want to "neither a Borrower nor a Lender be." Fortunately, young Pete Lender (Bradley Pierce) has become friends with Arrietty -- an alliance leading toward a method of thwarting Potter.

    I Also Recommend:

    Faintly remember this film.

    This was a pretty good movie with some recognizable actors from John Goodman, Bradley Pierce, Tom Felton and of course Hugh Laurie. Good ending. A childhood favorite worth seeing, at least for nostalgic value.

    A Great Family Movie

    Growing up, the story book of the Borrowers intrigued me, as an adult to share the story with my nieces in the form of a movie was a delight!! The characters, the curiosity of tiny people borrowing everything they need from "us". How fascinating to see things from the view of a Borrower and "beings" in this wonderful film.
    My nieces enjoyed it so much, the next time they visited they asked to see it again. We are big believers in seeing a movie more than once to notice details we may have missed the first time. We will watch it together time and time again.
    I would recommend this movie to anyone, especially those interested in a plot acceptable to show children. Maybe not too young, possibly five and up, John Goodman's character is the "bad guy" but he plays it so well.
