Read The Secret World of Arrietty before the film comes out!

For those who don’t know, I’m a Hayao Miyazaki fan. He is an internationally acclaimed animated film maker whose films deal with humanity’s relationship with nature and technology. Most of his animated films feature fantastical worlds with characters that don’t fall into the traditional good-evil dichotomies (which is one of the things that makes his films special).

The Secret World of Arrietty is another masterpiece (screenplay written by Miyazaki) that follows Arrietty, a four-inch tall girl living under the floorboards of a typical house, “borrowing” simple items to make her family home. Life changes for her and her family when they are discovered by Sho, an ordinary boy living in the house. This delicately hand-drawn animation embodies the dreams and longings of childhood all wrapped within a well-written, charming story. It will be sure to delight audiences of all ages!

  1. I don’t know about Arrietty, but the Borrowers definitely live in my house somewhere. I first heard of these little people while living in England as a small child. I know they are here because things are constantly disappearing for a couple of days, only to turn up again, exactly where they are supposed to be!
