A family of miniature people find their existence threatened due to a forbidden friendship in this Studio Ghibli adaptation of author Mary Norton's beloved children's book The Borrowers. Headstrong and full of energy, 14-year-old Arrietty (voice of Bridgit Mendler) is just like any other adolescent girl -- except for the fact that she's only a few inches tall. Arrietty and her family are Borrowers: a race of tiny people who live among the regular-size humans undetected, and only emerge to scrounge miniscule amounts of essential living supplies from well-stocked cupboards and cabinets. Contact with the Borrowers' normal-size counterparts is strictly forbidden, but when Arrietty attempts to help her father stock up on necessities and meets 12-year-old Shawn (voice of David Henrie), the pair develop an unlikely bond. Shawn has come to live with his great aunt, and should she find out about the Borrowers, it would be disastrous for Arrietty and her family. But perhaps by working together, Shawn and Arrietty can figure out a way for the Borrowers and humans to live together in harmony.

One of my favorite of the Studio Ghibli films. Meant to be enjoyed by children and adults alike with a beautiful soundtrack.
Studio Ghibi movies are amazing! I love this movie, and my family watches it together all the time.
A great film -- excellently drawn, colorful, well-paced and beautiful.
If you want to have good dreams before going to bed then this is the movie to watch, the simplicity in this well respected filmmaker's movies is totally remarkable in that you can be drawn into a scene without a lot of action going on. His stories hold very deep morals and he reveals the human essence in such a compelling way. This movie is great movie!
“The Secret World Of Arrietty” is a campy and heartwarming movie about a boy named Shawn (voiced by David Henrie) who befriends a miniature girl named Arrietty (voiced by Bridget Mendler). He also plays a role in shaping her family life and being a benevolent friend. The bonuses include a music video called “Summertime’ by Bridget Mendler and the making of the video. I decided to check out the movie after my husband rented it from the leasing office of the Apartment we reside in. “The Secret World of Arietty” is good for those who like cheery movies that are suitable for all ages.
It is horrible
