April Film Club Kids Screening: Arrietty (U)

A Saturday matinee kids screening for the Easter holidays: Arrietty (U)

Arrietty is from Japan’s Studo Ghibli who brought us the beautiful animation of Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle and Ponyo amongst others.

Arrietty is an adaptation of the English novel The Borrowers by Mary Norten about a family of tiny people who live secretly in the walls and floors of a typical household, borrowing items from humans to survive.

Synopsis: Arrietty tells the story of the Clock family who are four-inch-tall people living anonymously in another family’s residence, borrowing simple items to make their home. Life changes for the Clocks when their daughter, Arrietty, is discovered.


We will be screening the subtitled original 2010 version, not the 2012 American dubbed version but here is the English language trailer:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzBBIBSi2Vo
