EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW SCREENING
The Secret World of Arrietty
"Simply gorgeous...children will enjoy the borrowers' thrilling forays into the house in search of sustenance; adults can wallow in the exquisite detail of the interior and leafy surroundings. Animation simply doesn't get any better than Ghibli's ravishing creation."—The Daily Telegraph
Part of the ICA Playdate: and Third Annual Children's International Film Festival, don''t miss this exclusive preview screening of Disney's The Secret World of Arrietty—based on the award-winning novel The Borrowers—from Japan's famed Studio Ghibli.
Fourteen-year-old Arrietty is one of the "little people," living secretly with her parents under the floors of a country house. Her family survives by "borrowing" food and finding ingenious uses for the household objects dropped by its inhabitants—a single cube of sugar can last for weeks; a pin makes a great sword for fighting off hungry insects!
When Shawn, a delicate, handsome teenager moves into the room upstairs to build his strength before a heart operation, he catches a glimpse of Arreitty he is entranced. The two begin to form a bond, but with their secret now exposed, the borrowers worry that their time in the country house may be coming to an end.
