THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY
Apr 13 - 16, 5:30 and 7:30
This captivating and stylish fable, like others from Oscar-winning Japanese animator Hiyao Miyazaki (Spirited Away) feature children discovering hidden, fantastical worlds; here it is the miniature gleaners of Mary Norton's celebrated novel The Borrowers. Arrietty, a tiny teenager who lives with her parents under the floorboards of a country cottage, is befriended by a human boy, putting her entire family at risk. Produced and co-written by Miyazaki, it was directed by his protege Hiromasa Yonebayashi, and has been painstakingly dubbed into English with exceptional voicework by Amy Poehler, Will Arnett, Carol Burnett, David Henrie and Bridgit Mendler.
