Japanese animated feature from Studio Ghibli based on the 1952 children's novel 'The Borrowers' by Mary Norton. The Clock family, each only a few centimetres tall, live peacefully under the floorboards of a house in the Tokyo suburbs inhabited by the elderly Sadoko (voice of Phyllida Law). In order to survive, the Clocks borrow everything they need from their human host in such tiny amounts that they go virtually unnoticed. But their existence comes under threat when fearless 14-year-old Arrietty Clock (Saoirse Ronan) is spotted by Sadoko's sickly 12-year-old nephew Shô (Tom Holland).
Inspired by Mary Norton's classic children's book The Borrowers
, tiny 14 year old Arrietty lives under the floorboards of an old house with her father and mother. Their peaceful life is dramatically changed when the ever curious Arrietty accidentally allows herself to be seen by Sho, a poorly and lonesome 12 year old human boy. The fledgling friendship between the two lonely children causes Haru the housekeeper to become aware of the borrowers' existence. The family of little borrowers are forced to choose between staying in their well-established home or leaving for the uncertainty of the great outdoors.
