Studio Ghibli’s ‘Arrietty the Borrower’

Studio Ghibli’s ‘Arrietty the Borrower’, article.

Seems Ghibli has adapted The Borrowers. I read the book last year (on audio), and I quite liked it. It's quite inventive and has a quirky, understated sense of humor.  I'm not sure I'm keen on the movie (though I'm a huge Ghibli fan), because it seems to have a much more serious and "scary" tone than the books seemed to have.

Young relatively unknown actress Brigit Mendler provides the title character with a voice in English.
