The Borrowers

The film has a very different story from the book.
But fortunately it is good. I would even call it surprisingly good. It is really funny for one thing. John Goodman is priceless as the villain.

And I like their sort-of timeless choice for the design. Most of it is almost a period piece, beautifully designed like the fifties, the muted greens and reds and so on. Very nice. But then they will suddenly have the occasional thing, like small mobile phones. But they are mobile phones like they might have looked like if they were designed in the fifties! Great stuff.
