This Japanese movie is a treat for the whole family, good for adults as well as kids. I myself have watched it three times now, and it’s a classic! Disney hired some famous actors to voice the characters too! Amy Poehler, Carol Burnett and Will Arnett were great (although I personally prefer subtitles).

Arrietty is a miniature girl whose family lives behind the walls and baseboards of a human’s home. They tend to ‘borrow’ things that would usually go unnoticed; a cube of sugar here, a paperclip or clothes pin there. The story grabs your attention immediately, and the wonderful character interactions will keep you entertained from start to end. This Hayao Miyazaki movie is a great addition to any family’s movie collection!

Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli has created many masterpieces over the many years, and if this film has grabbed your attention, make sure to hunt down other classics that are made by them. I highly recommend: Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Castle in the Sky, Howl’s Moving Castle, Spirited Away, and Princess Mononoke.

If you are always looking for family-friendly movies that also entertain adults, you gotta see this one!
