From world-renowned Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli ('Spirited Away', 'Howl's Moving Castle', 'Ponyo') comes 'Arrietty' based on the much-loved children's book 'The Borrowers' by Mary Norton.

The film tells the story of tiny 14-year-old Arrietty living under the floorboards of a sprawling mansion set in a magical, overgrown garden with her father and mother. Arrietty and her family live by borrowing. Everything they have, they borrow or make from the things they have borrowed from the old lady who lives in the mansion.

Their peaceful life is dramatically changed when the ever-curious Arrietty accidentally allows herself to be seen by Sho, a lonely 12-year-old human boy. The two begin to confide in each other and, before long, a friendship begins to blossom…

'Arrietty' will be released by Madman Entertainment on January 12 2012
