The Secret World of Arrietty

Sunday, 6/3

"A marvelously captivating animated feature about very tiny people and the full-scale world they inhabit." – Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor

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 quietly among us. But when tenacious and tiny Arrietty is discovered by Shawn, a human boy, their secret and forbidden friendship blossoms into an extraordinary adventure.
