Mini Review - The Secret World Of Arrietty

The Secret World Of Arrietty (out Jan 12) is a Japanese animated film (dubbed in English) based on Mary Norton's novel The Borrowers. A family of tiny people who live under the floorboards of a remote house find their future threatened. More could have been made of the concept and the old woman is a little too strange but this is still a sweet, likeable family film with a few nice quirks. Grade: B+.
